UK Parliament rejects 3-day break for Conservative Party conference

British MPs rejected on Thursday the government's request for a three-day recess while the Conservatives stage their annual party conference. The House of Commons voted 306 to 289 to block the Parliamentary break until next Thursday, which could suspend the annual Conservative Party conference scheduled from Sunday to next Wednesday in Manchester.

The UK Parliament resumed its operation on Wednesday, one day after a unanimous ruling by the UK Supreme Court declared the government's prorogation unlawful.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on opposition parties to hold a confidence vote on his government amid growing pressure on him to resign. He said the opposition does nothing but dither and delay and accused lawmakers of sabotaging Brexit talks.
