The British government is going to ask Queen Elizabeth to suspend parliament until October 14, so that ministers have enough time to complete the Brexit, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson reports on Wednesday. The United Kingdom must have left the European Union by 1 November at the latest.

According to British media, a meeting is taking place on Wednesday at the Queen’s summer residence in Scotland.

According to the opposition, Prime Minister Johnson’s intention with this plan is to prevent MPs from adopting laws that could prevent the UK from leaving the EU.

Johnson denies this:

“We must continue with our domestic agenda, and that is why we are announcing a speech by the Queen on October 14,” he said in a response.

By this Johnson means that he wants the Queen to do the annual opening of parliament on that day. Normally the British Parliament returns from recess at the end of September or the beginning of October.
