Prorogation of Parliament
In R (on the application of Miller) (Appellant) v The Prime Minister (Respondent) Cherry and others (Respondents) v Advocate General for Scotland (Appellant) (Scotland)  UKSC 41, the Supreme Court concluded that the question of the lawfulness of the Prime Minister’s advice to Her Majesty the Queen to prorogue Parliament was justiciable, and in this case the decision to advise the Queen to prorogue Parliament was unlawful as it had the effect of frustrating/preventing Parliament’s ability to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification. On this basis the prorogation was void and of no effect. Parliament has therefore not been prorogued. Nick Wrightson, senior associate in the Public Law team at Kingsley Napley, and Kieran Laird, partner and head of constitutional affairs in the Gowling WLG Brexit Unit give their analysis of the Supreme Court’s decision, highlighting key legal and constitutional implications.
