UK Parliament Resumes

Boris Johnson
Members of UK Parliament have returned to the House of Commons after Tuesday's landmark ruling which saw UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament declared unlawful by the Supreme Court.

Boris Johnson, who flew back from a UN summit this morning, will address the Commons amid calls for him to resign.

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.
