Following the Supreme Court's judgment, the 2017-19 parliamentary session will resume on Wednesday 25 September.— UK House of Commons (@HouseofCommons) September 24, 2019
The House of Commons will sit at 11.30am. There will be no #PMQs. Ministerial statements, and applications for urgent questions and emergency debates will be allowed.
Mr Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks was unlawful, the Supreme Court ruled. Judges said it was wrong to stop MPs carrying out duties in the run-up to the Brexit deadline on 31 October. The PM has said he "profoundly disagreed" with Tuesday's landmark ruling but he would respect it. Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove said he would not criticise the court, but he "disagreed with their position". Five government statements have been confirmed - including from the prime minister and Leader of the House Jacob Rees-Mogg.
