    Publications

    The House of Commons has today voted 522 to 13 in favour of calling the snap general election, above the two-thirds majority that is required, as Labour and the Liberal Democrats supported the decision.

    Theresa May argued that a fresh mandate would strengthen her hand in Brexit negotiations and provide certainty for the future.

    The general election will now go ahead on 8 June 2017.
