Boris Johnson: I did not lie to the Queen over Parliament’s prorogation

Boris Johnson has denied lying to the Queen in order to secure the suspension of Parliament.

Scotland's highest civil court ruled on Wednesday that the five-week prorogation was unlawful because it was obtained for the "improper purpose of stymying Parliament".

However, the Prime Minister insisted he had sought the suspension so that the Government could set out a new legislative programme in a Queen's Speech on October 14.
