    Prime Minister Boris Johnson opens Commons debate on England’s new tier system ahead of vote this evening. 

    Boris Johnson is heading for a COVID showdown with rebel Tory MPs, despite being assured of victory in tonight’s Commons vote after Sir Keir Starmer said Labour will abstain.

    Around 50 Conservative MPs are predicted to come out against the government in a vote to approve the tier system of COVID curbs in England, in which 99% of the population face tough restrictions.
