Parliament LIVE STREAM: How to watch Commons debate and Boris speech LIVE online | Politics | News

Following the ruling that Boris Johnson suspending Parliament for five weeks was unlawful, MPs have returned to the House of Commons for an urgent debate. As the Commons resumed, Speaker John Bercow,  told MPs: “Colleagues, welcome back to our place of work.” Mr Bercow updated the House about the Supreme Court ruling and said he would make sure the previous prorogation was “expunged” from records and instead is listed as an adjournment.

He added: “I will arrange for the citation for that judgement to be entered in the journal of this House and accordingly direct that the item relating to the prorogation of Parliament in the journal of Monday, September 9 is expunged and the House is instead recorded as adjourned at the close of the business.”

Mr Bercow thanked Commons staff for working “exceptionally hard over the past 24-hours to prepare for this resumption”.

Parliament will first debate on the legal opinion of the Attorney General on the advice given to the Queen to prorogue Parliament.

Later the Prime Minister will deliver a speech to MPs.
