Mark Francois is back in the news and he's bringing with him talk of a 'star chamber'.

It sounds like a rejected Doctor Who idea, but what exactly does it mean.

Here's what you need to know in five minutes.

What is the 'star chamber'?

The name refers to an English court composed of Privy Counsellors and common-law judges from the 15th to 17th Century.

The ERG formed its own star chamber in 2019 to scrutinise Theresa May's proposed Brexit deal.

Who are the ERG?

The Herald: Jacob Rees-Mogg

The ERG is composed of Tory Brexit hardliners including Jacob Rees-Mogg, Suella Braverman and Sajid Javid.

In the run-up to the 2016 referendum 10 of its members worked for Vote Leave in an official capacity, including Michael Gove and Ian Duncan-Smith.

Why are they and their star chamber in the news now?

The star chamber has published a report into the government's Rwanda bill, which recommends that the vote be pulled.

A vote will be held tomorrow at Westminster on a proposal to declare Rwanda a safe country to send refugees to under UK law, which the government hopes will allow it to deport asylum seekers to the country.

A previous bill was struck down by the Supreme Court, which declared it unlawful as it could leave people open to human rights breaches.

What are the star chamber saying about it?

They say that the bill does not go far enough and is full of holes.

Former immigration minister Robert Jenrick says he expects it to be beset by legal challenges, and says it is "very clear" the bill will not succeed.

The ERG have not said they won't vote for it, but are urging the government to withdraw it, amend it, and propose it again.

Will Rishi Sunak face a confidence vote?

The government are briefing that this is not a confidence issue, with only around 30 rebellions needed to see the bill defeated.

However, it's been reported that some MPs have been threatened with an early election if they don't vote for the bill to pass.

Some have compared the situation to Theresa May when she failed to pass her aforementioned Brexit bill.

Ms May then faced a vote of no confidence, which she won, but she was forced to resign a few months later.
