Boris to recall Parliament if Supreme Court demands MPs return to Commons vows lawyer

Lord Keen made his remark during the first day of the Supreme Court hearing of two claims from pro-Brussels campaigners that the Prime Minister broke the law by using the “prorogation” procedure to lengthen Parliament’s traditional break for the conference season.
