The legal battle over the suspension of Parliament has finished for a second day at the Supreme Court.

The government’s lawyer, Sir James Eadie QC, said it was not for the courts to “design a set of rules” over prorogation as it was a political matter.

But Aidan O’Neill QC, on behalf of campaigners against the move, said it was used “for an improper purpose”.

Boris Johnson prorogued Parliament earlier this month for five weeks.

The prime minister said it would allow him to hold a Queen’s Speech on 14 October to outline his new policies for the coming year.

But critics say his intention was to silence MPs and stop them scrutinising his plans in the run-up to the Brexit deadline on 31 October.
