The Guardian today reported the following on prorogation:
Robert Buckland, the justice secretary, refused on Tuesday to rule out a second prorogation as part of No 10’s tactics to achieve a no-deal Brexit.
Asked on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme whether the current suspension of parliament could happen again, Buckland said: “Harold Wilson said a week is a long time in politics. It seems like an hour is a long time in politics at the moment.
Is there any precedent of extending a prorogation of parliament or two subsequent prorogations with little time in between? If there is or if there are any other rules governing prorogation, can the government just extend the current one or will it have to do the ceremonial things like having Black Rod walk to the commons again?
