Following the Supreme Court’s judgment that the prorogation of Parliament was unlawful, the 2017-19 parliamentary session will resume on 25 September 2019.

The House of Commons will sit at 11.30am. There will be no oral questions and so no Prime Minister’s Questions. The business will begin with urgent questions, followed by any ministerial statements. Applications for emergency debates may also be heard.

Speaker statement

The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow said:

“I welcome the Supreme Court’s judgment that the prorogation of Parliament was unlawful. The judges have rejected the Government’s claim that closing down Parliament for five weeks was merely standard practice to allow for a new Queen’s Speech. In reaching their conclusion, they have vindicated the right and duty of Parliament to meet at this crucial time to scrutinise the executive and hold Ministers to account. As the embodiment of our Parliamentary democracy, the House of Commons must convene without delay. To this end, I will now consult the party leaders as a matter of urgency.”

Prime Minister’s Questions

There will be no Prime Minister’s Questions tomorrow as two days notice must be given of questions.
