LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday he still wanted to set out a new legislative agenda through a Queen’s Speech and would be examining how to do so in line with the recent ruling from the Supreme Court.

“I think the House and the country does need a Queen’s Speech and we will be examining the judgement to see exactly how that should be brought forward in this new context,” Johnson told parliament.

A Queen’s Speech is the parliamentary device used to introduce a new session of parliament and usually requires a suspension, known as a prorogation, before it takes place.
