The Prime Minister will temporarily close down the Commons from the second week of September until October 14, when there will be a Queen's Speech to open a new session of Parliament.

The Queen approved the order to prorogue Parliament no earlier than September 9 and no later than September 12, until October 14.

The Prime Minister said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda".
