Andrea Leadsom, the leader of the Commons, has just delivered a short business statement. She did not announce a Syria debate later this week, as some of us were expecting.

May’s statement is finally over. It lasted for more than three hours. John Bercow, the Commons speaker, says 140 backbenchers asked question.
