John Bercow and Boris Johnson are on a collision course this evening ahead of a crunch showdown in the House of Commons tomorrow.
Mr Johnson wants to try to force another 'meaningful vote' on his Brexit deal after his first attempt was scuppered yesterday.
But the Commons Speaker is considering whether the vote should be allowed to go ahead amid growing speculation he will block the Prime Minister.
Parliamentary rules dictate that MPs are not supposed to vote on the same motion more than once.
Mr Bercow could argue that Mr Johnson blew his chance to vote on his Brexit deal after he failed to secure the support of MPs yesterday on 'Super Saturday'.
The government is likely to argue that because MPs hijacked the motion and amended it to force the PM to ask the EU for a Brexit delay they never actually voted on Mr Johnson's original proposals.
Jacob Rees-Mogg, the leader of the House of Commons, signalled the government's intention to bring forward another 'meaningful vote' tomorrow when he addressed MPs at the close of proceedings yesterday.
But Mr Bercow said he would have to rule on whether the vote could go ahead.
