BORIS Johnson's government is set to suspend parliament by delaying the Queen's Speech to October 14, effectively limiting MPs' opportunities to stop a No-Deal Brexit to next week. 

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg revealed the information this morning, adding it will be confirmed by the privy council at Balmoral today. 

The delay means September 3 is likely to be a big showdown day in the House of Commons.

September 10 is likely to be the day the suspension begins, according to reports. 

According to the journalist, Downing Street has denied the move has anything to do with Brexit. A source told her "this is about the NHS and violent crime, not Brexit, and the courts have no locus to interfere in a bog standard Queen's Speech process".

Leaked emails revealed at the weekend that the Prime Minister had sought legal advice regarding proroguing parliament for five weeks from the beginning of September. MPs are expected to break then for a short period anyway to attend party conferences.

In those emails it was suggested a Queen's Speech would be held on October 14, the date which will shortly be confirmed by the privy council. 

The move would leave MPs with only a dozen or so parliamentary days until Brexit.

It also limits time for any deal to be passed. 

Journalist Nick Eardley said one opposition MP had described the move as "war".
