Barclay says British government will abide by Supreme Court ruling on parliament suspension
Thursday, 19 September 2019 British Brexit minister Stephen Barclay said on Thursday the conservative government will abide by the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on the parliament suspension ordered by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The Supreme Court begins hearing whether the prorogation of Parliament is unlawful. It will take place over three days and it is unclear when a ruling will be made. 11 justices are sitting on a panel for the case, indicating the importance of this case.
While speaking to media in the national capital on July 10, the General Secretary of Indian National Congress, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra spoke on Vikas Dubey encounter case. She said, "Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has turned Uttar Pradesh into 'apradh pradesh'. Criminals like Vikas Dubey are prospering and being shielded by people in power." "Congress demands a probe by a sitting Supreme Court judge in the entire Kanpur episode," Priyanka Gandhi added.
The Prime Minister has urged people to wear face coverings in confined places when meeting others they do not normally come into contact with. He added that people should start returning to work when they can.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer called on Boris Johnson to apologise for his comments on care homes.Sir Keir said: “On Monday, when asked why care home deaths had been so high the Prime Minister said, and I quote, ‘too many care homes didn’t really follow the procedures in the way that they could have’.“That has caused huge offence to frontline care workers. It has now been 48 hours. Will the Prime Minister apologise to care workers?”Mr Johnson replied: “The last thing I wanted to do is to blame care workers for what has happened or for any of them to think that I was blaming them because they’ve worked hard, incredibly hard, throughout this crisis, looking after some of the most vulnerable people in our country and doing an outstanding job.”“And as he knows, tragically, 257 of them have lost their lives.“And when it comes to taking blame, I take full responsibility for what has happened.”
