Stocks are set for a slightly higher start ahead of another possible meaningful vote later in the day, likely before 2200 BST, on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal proposal.

At the weekend, MPs voted in a favour of an amendment proposed by Sir Oliver Letwin meant to close off the last remaining loop-hole for a no-deal Brexit even if MPs had voted in favour of Johnson’s proposed deal with Brussels, which in the end resulted in Johnson’s proposal not being voted on at all.
