Parliament to be prorogued next Tuesday

Following the previous attempt to prorogue parliament, the government has confirmed its intentions to prorogue parliament next Tuesday.

The prime minister’s former attempt was deemed to be unlawful by the Supreme Court in late September.

The government must bring the present parliamentary session to a close prior to holding a Queen’s speech which will set of plans for the coming session.

The decision to prorogue parliament means that there will be no prime minister’s questions next Wednesday.

No 10 disclosed that the prorogation would take place "for the shortest time possible" to accommodate for the State Opening of Parliament.

Johnson did not attend PMQs this week due to his attendance at the Conservative party conference where he gave his conference speech.

The prime minister has participated in one PMQs, on September 4 since entering his premiership.

The parliamentary session was believed to have come to an end on September 10, however, following the Supreme Court ruling the session technically did not end.

The Queen’s Speech would detail government’s plans for schools, crime, the NHS, future investment in infrastructure and developing the economy.
