LABOUR leader Jeremy Corbyn has written to the Queen after the Prime Minister announced a plan to suspend parliament before Brexit and block efforts to prevent a No-Deal outcome. 

Boris Johnson will suspend parliament from around September 10 to October 14, when a Queen's Speech will officially open the new parliament. 

Corbyn called the move "an outrage and a threat to our democracy".

In a statement he said: "I am appalled at the recklessness of Johnson's government, which talks about sovereignty and yet is seeking to suspend parliament to avoid scrutiny of its plans for a reckless No-Deal Brexit.

"This is an outrage and a threat to our democracy."

He went on: "That is why Labour has been working across parliament to hold this reckless government to account, and prevent a disastrous No-Deal which parliament has already ruled out.

"If Johnson has confidence in his plans he should put them to the people in a General Election or public vote."

The Tories have denied the move has anything to do with Brexit. 

Johnson claimed it was time for a new session of Parliament to set out his "exciting agenda".

Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said it was "perfectly normal procedure".
