Brexit: Supreme court to rule on whether Boris Johnson's suspension of parliament was lawful - live news

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including the supreme court ruling on whether Boris Johnson’s long suspension of parliament was lawful and the Labour conference in Brighton

When Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader he said he wanted to give party members more say over policy. Obviously he does not quite see eye to eye with many members on Brexit, but at this conference delegates have been given more say to debate policy than in the past and, just as yesterday they debated two rival motions on Brexit, today they will debate two rival ones on climate change.

Composite 16 (green new deal) says a Labour government should work towards net zero carbon emissions, but it does not set a deadline. Composite 17 (Labour’s socialist green new deal) says Labour should “work towards a path to net zero carbon emissions by 2030” and make this a legal target if it can be achieved alongside a “just transition for workers”.

The proposal to do it by 2030 threatens whole communities, threatens jobs, and frankly GMB members in communities right up and down the UK have heard it all before. We heard it before about a just transition. What does a just transition mean?

This will mean that within a decade people’s petrol cars being confiscated. This will mean families can only take one flight every five years ...

Net zero carbon emissions by 2030 is utterly unachievable. We can’t go to the country with a plan that is, frankly, not credible, is not deliverable.
