More than 800 in South Holland back petition to stop suspension of parliament

More than 800 people in South Holland have signed a petition demanding that a move to suspend Parliament is halted.

It follows approval from the Queen for prime minister Boris Johnson’s plan to suspend Parliament for more than a month, from the second week of September until October 14.

The petition on Parliament's website amassed the 100,000 signatures required to be considered for debate by MPs less than three hours after Mr Johnson announced his plan to prorogue Parliament in order to push through his new domestic agenda.
