LONDON (Reuters) - A group of lawmakers will seek permission from a Scottish court on Monday to appeal against its decision to refuse a bid to stop Prime Minister Boris Johnson from suspending parliament, a court spokeswoman said.

Last week the court rejected a request to place an interim block on Johnson’s order to suspend parliament but said it would hear full arguments this week.
