Boris Johnson Cuts Trip To The UN Short After Supreme Court Ruling

British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, along with other MPs and peers will return to Parliament on Wednesday after the Supreme Court ruled that its suspension was unlawful.

Boris Johnson, who is flying back early from a UN summit in New York, faces calls to resign from opposition groups.

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”.

Commons Speaker John Bercow said MPs will sit from 11:30 BST. There will be no Prime Ministers’ Questions but urgent questions, ministerial statements and emergency debates would be heard.

Mr Gove also said the government would outline its approach to the court ruling later through the Leader of the Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg.

BBC parliamentary correspondent Mark D’Arcy said there had been 32 applications for urgent questions so far, and a statement from the prime minister was also “expected”.

Following Tuesday’s unanimous ruling, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn brought forward his party conference speech so he could return to Westminster on Wednesday.
