LONDON (Reuters) - The leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn has written to Queen Elizabeth to express grave concern about Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plan to suspend parliament until Oct. 14th, a party source said on Wednesday.

Corbyn also requested a meeting with the Queen.

Another smaller opposition party, the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats, said they had also written to the Queen to express their concerns.
