Jacob Rees-Mogg is keen to hold a session free of Covid restrictions on the Wednesday of that week - July 21 - just before the House breaks up for its summer recess. 

And Speaker Lindsay Hoyle is expected to lift restrictions on numbers, with masks set to become optional - although some other coronavirus rules could be maintained. 

Before the pandemic hundreds of MPs would routinely cram into the chamber for PMQ at noon on Wednesdays, but since last spring just a few dozen have been allowed to attend in person. 

Currently the limit is 64 MPs, after microphones were installed in the under galleries of the House to boost participation. 

Questions have been raised about what will happen to the rules in the Commons chamber after Boris Johnson (pictured at PMQs last week) announced most restrictions are set to be axed in England on July 19
