Brexit: Judge rules Johnson's plan to suspend Parliament is lawful

A judge at the highest civil court in Scotland has found Boris Johnson's planned prorogation of Parliament is lawful.

Legal action aimed at preventing the UK Government suspending Parliament ahead of the Brexit deadline of October 31 was considered at the Court of Session in Edinburgh on Tuesday.

It followed claims the Prime Minister wants to limit MPs' scrutiny and their attempts to stop a no-deal Brexit.

Announcing his decision on Wednesday, Lord Doherty said choosing when to prorogue Parliament was for politicians and not the courts - but this will now be appealed against.
