The government has already made one prorogation attempt, with the suspension intended to last for five weeks, but in aIf those plans go ahead, MPs will be recalled the following Monday, when the speech will be delivered. Mr Johnson is likely to face further questions about any negotiations with Europe, which may or may not have progressed in the meantime.
