Parliament suspended after today, Downing Street confirms
Prime Minister will not seek another extension of EU withdrawal process, Number 10 says.
Parliament will be suspended at the close of business on Monday, Downing Street has confirmed.
MPs will be asked to vote today for a general election next month in a bid to break the Brexit impasse, just days after rejecting a previous bid.
Opposition leaders have agreed to turn down the fresh attempt later on Monday, insisting a law they passed last week seeking to avoid a no-deal withdrawal must be implemented first.
The Prime Minister has said he will not ask the EU for an extension to the current scheduled October 31 withdrawal date.
Following business on Monday, parliament will shutdown until October 14.
SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford said his MPs will reject the PM's call for an early general election until a no-deal Brexit is no longer a possibility.
After meeting with opposition leaders, Mr Blackford said: "It is clear there must be an early election - but it cannot happen while the Tory government is threatening to subvert the law to force through a catastrophic no-deal Brexit on October 31.
"If Boris Johnson wants an election he must obey the law and take a no-deal Brexit off the table.
"It is beyond belief that the Prime Minister is disrespecting democracy by seeking to shut down parliament and railroad through an extreme Brexit against the will of parliament and the people.
"Once the threat of no-deal is off the table, we will move for an early election."
Last week, MPs voted to make it illegal for the UK to leave the EU without a deal, forcing Mr Johnson to ask for an extension beyond the scheduled October 31 exit date unless an agreement is reached by October 19.
However, a Number 10 spokesman said: "The Prime Minister is not going to seek an extension.
"If MPs want to resolve this there is an easy way - vote for an election today and let the public decide."
