More than 100 MPs from all sides of the House of Commons have urged Boris Johnson to recall parliament immediately.

“Since the Second World War, parliament has been recalled multiple times in every decade for a wide range of political, security and economic reasons,” the MPs said, in a letter sent to the prime minister. “Our country is on the brink of an economic crisis, as we career towards a no-deal Brexit which will have an immediate effect on food and medical supplies, damage our economy, jobs, the public finances, public services, universities and long-term economic security.

“A no-deal Brexit also threatens our crucial security co-operation to keep our country safe from criminals and terrorists.” They added: “We face a national emergency, and parliament must be recalled now in August and sit permanently until 31 October, so that the voices of the people can be heard, and that there can be proper scrutiny of your government.”
