British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has asked Queen Elizabeth II to temporarily suspend Parliament in order to prevent lawmakers from pushing through new legislation on a so-called no-deal Brexit.
Queen approves Boris Johnson’s request to suspend Parliament
By Nicole Darrah | Fox NewsBy FOX News, August 2019:
Queen Elizabeth II has formally approved Boris Johnson’s request to temporarily suspend Parliament, a move that will largely prevent lawmakers from pushing through new legislation and ultimately sabotaging the prospect of a no-deal Brexit.
In a letter to lawmakers released Wednesday, the prime minister said he “spoke to Her Majesty The Queen to request an end to the current parliamentary session.”
He said an integral feature to the legislative program will be the introduction of a bill to leave the European Union and “to secure its passage” before Oct. 31.
Hours later, the queen approved the request, suspending Parliament from mid-September to Oct. 14.
Earlier Wednesday, he confirmed reports that he would hold the Queen’s Speech — normally a formality that outlines the legislative agenda — on Oct. 14. Since Parliament is normally suspended before the speech, the decision means opposition lawmakers would be unlikely to have enough time to pass laws blocking the U.K.’s exit from the E.U. on Oct. 31 without a negotiated deal.
