WILTSHIRE MPs will today be joining their counterparts in the House of Commons today as Parliament sits on a Saturday for the first time in 37 years to vote on Boris Johnson's Brexit deal.

The majority of the Wiltshire brigade are likely to back Mr Johnson and abide by his plea for MPs to come together to Brexit done.

Both Chippenham MP Michelle Donelan and South West Wiltshire MP Andrew Murrison have retweeted Mr Johnson's message he put out yesterday which said: "I want us to #GetBrexitDone on Saturday, so that we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, tackling crime and protecting our environment."

Devizes MP Claire Perry has also backed Mr Johnson's mission to complete Brexit in the past few months after earlier being critical of him during the leadership battle.

Also in London today will be a large contingent from the group Devizes For EU who will be joining in a march demanding a second referendum on Brexit.

The outcome of today's debate in Parliament is too close to call with some Labour MPs expected to rebel and back Mr Johnson but the DUP is still holding out.

The PM has been trying to convince MPs to support the agreement he secured with the EU, ahead of what is expected to be a knife-edge vote in the Commons.

Ahead of the Commons debate, Mr Johnson urged MPs to "come together" to back his Brexit deal, insisting there was "no better outcome".

A number of Tory MPs who voted against Mrs May's agreement on all three occasions it was put to the Commons have said they will be supporting the deal.

BBC political correspondent Nick Eardley said the latest hardline Brexiteer MP to give Mr Johnson his backing was Mark Francois, the deputy chairman of the European Research Group.

Also crucial to Mr Johnson's hopes of success will be the 21 Tories who had the whip withdrawn for supporting a bill to force the PM to seek an extension to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

Sir Nicholas Soames, who is one such former Tory, has indicated he will vote in favour of the deal, adding the other 20 would "by and large vote for it".

However, Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionists have made clear they will not be voting for the deal and have been trying to persuade hardline Brexiteers to follow their lead.
