From the unlawful prorogation of 2019 to the controversies over parliament’s role during the COVID-19 pandemic, Boris Johnson’s relationship with parliament has been more tumultuous than most.

Speakers are:

  • Mark Harper, Conservative MP for Forest of Dean and former Chief Whip and Minister for Political and Constitutional Reform
  • Dame Cheryl Gillan, Conservative MP for Chesham and Amersham and vice-chair of the Conservative backbench 1922 Committee and a former Cabinet minister
  • Lord Young of Cookham, Conservative Life peer and formerly Chief Whip and Leader of the House of Commons
  • Professor Meg Russell FBA, Senior Fellow of UK in a Changing Europe and Director of the UCL Constitution Unit
