Brexit: Scottish court says ordering Boris Johnson to seek delay ‘not necessary’

A Scottish court has ruled it is ‘not necessary’ to issue an order forcing Boris Johnson to ask Brussels for a Brexit delay.

The Court of Session, Scotland’s highest court, said it planned to wait until October 21 to decide whether to issue a ruling that would force the Prime Minister to abide by the law.

The Benn Act compels Mr Johnson to ask for a delay to the Brexit deadline if he’s unable to secure a deal by the Brussels summit on October 18.

But he has repeatedly claimed that the UK will leave the EU on October 31 with or without a deal.

Anti-Brexit campaigners had sought an order from the court asking it to order Johnson to abide by and send the letter to the European Union if he refused to do so himself.
