Here's what has happened so far:

  • Scotland's SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford has said it will move an amendment to rule out no-deal Brexit under "any circumstances" and warns "a recession worse than the 2008 financial crisis"
  • Debate over Labour's handling of the anti-semitism row has reared its head again, with Theresa May calling for Labour to suspend Chris Williamson, the MP who reportedly said the party was "too apologetic".
  • Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says a Bank of England forecast says there is a chance of the UK dipping into a recession.
  • Green MP Caroline Lucas says in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the organisation of medical supplies is going to be handed to a company who were responsible for KFC running out of chicken supplies in the UK.
  • British government stresses the importance of dialogue and diplomatic solutions to heal tensions between India and Pakistan. British officials expected to speak to Indian and Pakistani embassies in the UK later today.

  • Foreign Office Minister Mark Field says the situation requires a "nimble diplomatic" resolution but it is not appropriate for the UK to intervene. Pakistan shot two Indian aircraft on Wednesday following India entering Pakistan's airspace on Tuesday.
