All times stated are UK

  1. What is due to happen next?

    Monday - Day four of MPs' Brexit debate, with the PM set to make a statement to the Commons setting out reassurances from the EU over the Irish backstop

    Tuesday - Day five of debate followed by "meaningful vote" on the PM's deal. MPs will also get to vote on amendments that could reshape the deal. If the deal is rejected Theresa May will get three working days to come up with a "plan B"

    Wednesday - Mrs May is likely to head to Brussels to try to get further concessions from the EU

    Monday 21 January - Expected Commons vote on "Plan B"

    The UK will leave the EU on Friday, 29 March, unless MPs vote to delay or cancel Brexit.

  2. What will May say in her speech?

    Speaking to factory workers later today, Mrs May is expected to say: "As we have seen over the last few weeks, there are some in Westminster who would wish to delay or even stop Brexit and who will use every device available to them to do so."

    She will add she now believes MPs blocking Brexit is more likely than a no-deal scenario.

    Mrs May will say: "I ask MPs to consider the consequences of their actions on the faith of the British people in our democracy.

    "Imagine if an anti-devolution House of Commons had said to the people of Scotland or Wales that despite voting in favour of a devolved legislature, Parliament knew better and would overrule them. Or else force them to vote again.

    "What if we found ourselves in a situation where Parliament tried to take the UK out of the EU in opposition to a remain vote?

    "People's faith in the democratic process and their politicians would suffer catastrophic harm. We all have a duty to implement the result of the referendum."

    Theresa May
  3. Good morning

    The prime minister will today make a last-ditch attempt to persuade MPs to back her Brexit deal ahead of tomorrow's Commons vote.

    In a speech today, Theresa May will warn Brexiteers that Parliament is more likely to block Brexit than let the UK leave without a deal.

    Targeting those hoping for another referendum, Mrs May will add that trust in politics will suffer "catastrophic harm" if the referendum result is not implemented.

    Labour has vowed to table a vote of no confidence if Mrs May loses.

    We will bring you the latest updates throughout the day.
