Voting in the Commons has already begun on what is billed as the final night in Parliament for the Conservative’s crucial Rwanda Bill.

Speaking at a surprise press conference from Downing Street this morning, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak put the blocking House of Lords on notice.

He told the country: “Enough is enough. No more prevarication, no more delay. Parliament will sit there tonight and vote no matter how late it goes”.

It’s though voting could continue until around 1am, with the Commons set to reject the Lords’ frustrating amendments as many times as is necessary to finally force the crucial legislation through.

Mr Sunak added: “No ifs, no buts. These flights are going to Rwanda.”

The House of Lords has blocked the legislation by repeatedly amending the Bill, costing the Government three weeks of delay.
