ExpandMyMind Posted August 28, 2019 #1 Share Posted August 28, 2019 Quote The Queen will be asked by the government to suspend Parliament just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the Brexit deadline. BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg says it will make way for Boris Johnson's new administration to hold a Queen's Speech - laying out the government's plans - on 14 October. But it means MPs are unlikely to have time to pass any laws that could stop the prime minister taking the UK out of the EU without a deal on 31 October. Tory backbencher and Remain campaigner Dominic Grieve called it "an outrageous act", and warned it could lead to a vote of no confidence in Mr Johnson, adding: "This government will come down." But a No 10 source defended the move, saying: "It's time a new government and new PM set out a plan for the country after we leave the EU." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49493632 3 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
