British Queen Approves PM’s Advice to Suspend Parliament Earlier

tenor

British Queen, Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor), today approved British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s advice to suspend the British parliament on any day in between September 9 and 12.

A statement from the Privy Council, an advisory body to the monarch, said:

“It is this day ordered by Her Majesty in Council that the Parliament be prorogued on a day no earlier than Monday the 9th day of September and no later than Thursday the 12th day of September 2019 to Monday the 14th day of October 2019.”

This means, only few weeks prior to the Brexit deadline of October 31, the Parliament would be suspended.

The move limits the time opponent MPs have to pass laws to stop a no-deal Brexit.
