Theresa May has announced that a meaningful vote in Parliament over her Brexit deal will be held in the third week of January.
She cancelled the previous date for the vote at the last minute over fears it would be heavily defeated.
The Prime Minister was forced into agreeing to a new date after Jeremy Corbyn prepared to table a vote of no-confidence in her leadership.
The Labour leader said he would move ahead with the motion unless May set a fixed date.
Ian Blackford, the SNP’s leader at Westminster, has argued the PM should call the vote on the Brexit deal this week.
Corbyn said: “The deal is unchanged and is not going to change. The house must get on with the vote and move on to consider the realistic alternatives.”

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
