The suspension of Parliament is judged unlawful by the Supreme Court
Decision of the Supreme Court on the Prorogation of Parliament
Earlier today (24 September 2019) the UK Supreme Court ruled on two questions regarding an Order to prorogue the UK Parliament. First, was it justiciable: in other words, could the decision to prorogue be subjected to scrutiny by the courts? Second, was it legal?
The court found that it did have the power to rule on this question. It went on to find that the Government’s decision to prorogue Parliament for five weeks was unlawful, and that Parliament has not in fact been prorogued.
This Insight will set out the findings of the Court, the remedies granted and the next steps for Parliament.
