The UK government will ask The Queen to suspend Parliament days after MPs return to work, and just weeks before the Brexit deadline, according to reports. 

The move will make way for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's new administration to hold a Queen's Speech, laying out the government's future plans.

It will mean MPs are unlikely to have time to pass laws to prevent a no-deal Brexit on 31 October.

According to a source from No 10: "It's time a new government and new PM set out a plan for the country after we leave the EU."

A government source said the move was to help the new prime minister get on with implementing his domestic agenda, SkyNews reported.

"There will be ample opportunity for people to discuss Brexit before and after the EU council [in October]," they added.

Sky News understands the full cabinet has not yet been informed.

The shutting down of Parliament, known as prorogation, has caused uproar as some claim it will prevent MPs being able to play their democratic part in the Brexit process.

Just days after Boris Johnson took office, he began working on a "very substantial" post-Brexit trade deal with US President Donald Trump.

While speaking about joining forces to outline plans for a deal between the UK and US, the two leaders said the unity would include "unparalleled" trade opportunities.

According to President Trump, the deal could potentially create a "three to four or five times" increase in trade between the two countries following Britain’s scheduled departure from the European Union.

"We’re working already on a trade agreement."

"And I think it’ll be a very substantial trade agreement."

"You know we can do with the UK, we can do three to four times, we were actually impeded by their relationship with the European Union."
