The following Corporate Crime practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
ARCHIVED: This archived Practice Note tracked the progress of bills through Parliament during the parliamentary session which ran from June 2017–October 2019 and was closed by the Prorogation of Parliament on 8 October 2019. Prorogation brings to an end all Parliamentary bills that have not received Royal Assent unless they have been carried over by a motion of either House of Parliament. Two of bills from this Parliamentary session have been carried over to the next session. Parliament will be re-opened on 14 October 2019 and bills progressing through the next Parliamentary session will be tracked separately.
On 24 September 2019, the Supreme Court declared that the prorogation of Parliament by Order in Council dated 28 August 2019 was unlawful, null and of no effect. As a result of the Supreme Court’s judgment, Parliament was never prorogued on 9 September 2019. For further information, see: LNB News 24/09/2019 21.
