Sir Oliver Letwin called on his fellow MPs on Tuesday to support Prime Minister Boris Johnson's program motion that would allow the government to pass all Brexit-related legislation prior to the October 31 deadline.

Letwin wrote on Twitter: "Getting seriously worried that HMG will pull Bill if Programme Motion is defeated. Surely best for all of us who regard this deal as the least of the evils to vote for the Programme Motion, whatever we really think of it."

Earlier, Johnson threatened he would pull the Withdrawal Agreement Bill and organize a general election by the end of the year unless his program motion passes.
