British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called a cabinet meeting for later on Monday and could ask lawmakers to vote on calling an election if they vote against his government on Brexit, BBC Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg said.

"Cabinet is being called for this afternoon," Kuenssberg said. "Real possibility now Johnson might put a motion down to ask MPs to vote for an election this week."

"This would happen if the rebels pass the law - not of course if they lose!"
