Boris Johnson calls for December election

Boris Johnson has said he will give MPs more time to debate his Brexit deal if they agree to an election. The Prime Minister said there would be more time allocated for the Commons to look at his deal immediately, provided they accept his bid for a December 12 vote. It comes amid signs the EU is set to grant a fresh Brexit delay until the end of January after Mr Johnson was forced – under the terms of the so-called Benn Act – to request a further extension.
