BORIS Johnson has denied lying to the Queen over the suspension of Parliament and insists claims are “absolutely not” true.
The PM has been accused of misleading Her Majesty through his ministers who gave advice which led to MPs not sitting for five weeks.
The accusations came after the Court of Session in Edinburgh said the prorogation was “unlawful”.
In response, Boris said: “Absolutely not.
“The High Court in England plainly agrees with us but the Supreme Court will have to decide.
“We need a Queen’s Speech, we need to get on and do all sorts of things at a national level.”
The High Court in England plainly agrees with us but the Supreme Court will have to decide.
He added: “Parliament will have time both before and after that crucial summit on October 17th and 18th to talk about the Brexit deal.
“I’m very hopeful that we will get a deal, as I say, at that crucial summit. We’re working very hard – I’ve been around the European capitals talking to our friends.
“I think we can see the rough area of a landing space, of how you can do it – it will be tough, it will be hard, but I think we can get there.”
Mr Johnson made the comments as he visited NLV Pharos, a lighthouse tender, which is moored alongside HMS Belfast on the Thames for London International Shipping Week.
