The PM is "entitled" to suspend Parliament, even if it is for political reasons, the Supreme Court has heard. reports citing BBC.

A Scottish court ruled the five-week suspension was "unlawful", but Lord Keen QC, for the government, said the decision was not one for the courts.

The Supreme Court is hearing two appeals relating to the decision by Boris Johnson to prorogue Parliament.

Lord Pannick QC, for campaigners against the move, said it was done to "silence" MPs in the run-up to Brexit.

He was representing an appeal, brought by businesswoman and campaigner Gina Miller, against a contradictory English High Court ruling that - unlike the judgement in Scotland - said the suspension was "purely political" and therefore "not a matter" for the judiciary.
