Chief whip Julian Smith has just emailed Tory MPs putting them on a three line whip for Tuesday afternoon. No explanation has been given.
Please be advised that the whip on Tuesday will now be a three-line whip from 12:30pm. All colleagues should be on the estate and available.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
