Early election bill passes Commons hurdle

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's proposal for a general election in December has passed its first hurdle in the House of Commons.

The second reading of the bill was passed without a formal vote, just with MPs shouting "aye" or "no".

The bill will now move to the committee stage, where MPs will discuss amendments and scrutinise it further.
