UK Speaker Bercow says House of Commons must convene without delay

LONDON, England, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Britain’s House of Commons must convene without delay, Speaker John Bercow said on Tuesday, welcoming a ruling by the Supreme Court that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament was unlawful.

“As the embodiment of our parliamentary democracy, the House of Commons must convene without delay. To this end, I will now consult the party leaders as a matter of urgency,” Bercow said in a statement released by his office. (Reporting by William James, editing by David Milliken)
