It's set to be a fiery day at Westminster as MPs look set to vote on a call for a ceasefire in the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.

The SNP have tabled a motion calling for the House to back a cessation of hostilities, which is likely to be selected for debate.

Here's everything you need to know about today's vote.

What is being proposed?

The House of Commons will today vote on the King's Speech, which was given last week and sets out the programme of legislation that the Government intend to pursue in the forthcoming parliamentary session.

MPs can put forward amendments to tweak the legislation if there are areas they feel have not been sufficiently addressed which, if selected by the speaker, will then be debated and voted on by the House.

The SNP have put forward a motion which proposes Parliament "join with the international community in urgently pressing all parties to agree to an immediate ceasefire" in Gaza.

Will the vote pass?

No. The Conservative Party, who hold a big majority, will vote against it - perhaps all of their MPs - and they'll be joined by significant numbers from Labour abstaining or voting against.

The motion will be defeated but that's not really the important bit.

The Herald: Keir Starmer

What is the important bit?

Labour is divided over the conflict, with many of its MPs, councillors and MSPs wanting the party to call for a ceasefire.

Leader Keir Starmer is not willing to call for a ceasefire, only going as far as to call for increased "humanitarian pauses" in the fighting.

Many in his party believe that does not go far enough, and Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar has called for a ceasefire.

MPs will be whipped to vote against the amendment, with any shadow cabinet members who defy the whip likely facing the sack.

What are key Labour figures saying?

Former Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard has urged MPs to defy the whip and vote for a ceasefire.

Mr Sarwar has called for one, but isn't an MP so won't have to go against Mr Starmer on the floor.

Labour is pushing its own amendment urging for longer pauses in fighting and expressing concern over civilian deaths - but stopping short of calling for a ceasefire.

Mr Starmer has said that with a ceasefire "Hamas would be emboldened and start preparing for future violence immediately"

Why have the SNP tabled the amendment when it can't win?

There is deep and genuinely held feeling in the party - as in Labour - about the issue. First Minister Humza Yousaf has spoken movingly about his family who were trapped in Gaza when the conflict erupted.

It's also politically useful if they can portray the Labour party, on a high after winning the Rutherglen & Hamilton West by-election, as divided on such a key issue.

By some estimates up to a dozen shadow ministers could resign rather than vote against a ceasefire.

When will we know if the motion has been selected?

The motion, and Labour's, were selected by speaker Lindsay Hoyle at around 2pm.

When will we get the result of the vote?

We don't know exactly when, but it'll be after 7pm.

What has been said by outside figures?

Human rights organisation Amnesty International said: "This vote is a vital moment for all MPs to show they truly support the protection of civilians in Gaza and Israel.

“A negotiated and comprehensive ceasefire would put a stop to unlawful attacks by all parties, halt the rapidly-rising civilian death toll in Gaza and enable aid agencies to get life-saving aid, water and medical supplies into Gaza in response to what have been staggering levels of human suffering.

“A ceasefire is also likely to be essential to securing the release of the hostages captured on 7 October.

“We call on all parties to allow MPs to have a free vote on this vital issue, and call on all MPs to get behind the vote and add their voice to mounting international concern at the catastrophic loss of civilian life in Israel and Gaza.”

Save The Children, The Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury have also called for a ceasefire for humanitarian reasons.

The IDF has said there will be no ceasefire until Hamas is eliminated and hostages are freed, only humanitarian pauses.
