Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen
The Labour MP Chris Bryant has come top in the ballot for private members’ bills. Twenty MPs were selected in the ballot, but only the top seven can be assured that their bill will get to go first when private members’ bills are debated on a Friday (meaning only their bills will have a decent chance of getting passed second reading).
The full list of MPs selected, in order, is here.
Karen Bradley, the culture secretary, will make a Commons statement about her decision on the 21st Century Fox bid for Sky. She is also taking culture questions first, but presumably she will dodge any questions she gets about the bid during that session and tell MPs to wait for her statement.
One statement today from Karen Bradley on proposed merger between 21st Century Fox and Sky.
No Urgent Questions. More details to follow.
