London First comments on plans to suspend Parliament
28 August 2019
Commenting on the announcement today by Prime Minister Boris Johnson announcing plans to suspend Parliament and hold a Queen’s Speech in October, John Dickie, Director of Strategy and Policy at London First, said:
“The Government is further undermining business confidence by stating its intention to suspend Parliament, which would prevent elected representatives from proper scrutiny of Brexit over the next two months.
“MPs should explore every avenue to stop us leaving the EU without a deal, as this would hurt most those who can afford it least.”
