UK House of Commons Speaker John Bercow ruled that vote on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal cannot take place today. Bercow cited a parliamentary rule dating back to 1604 under which the government cannot repeatedly ask Parliament to vote on the exact same motion.

He said, “it is clear that the motions are in substance the same. My ruling is therefore that the motion will not be debated today as it would be repetitive and disorderly to do so.”
