TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks were set to rise at the open on Tuesday ahead of the Supreme Court’s decision on the prorogation of Parliament.
The FTSE 100 was called to open 22 points higher at 7,348.
The Supreme Court is due to announce later in the morning whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson acted unlawfully when he suspended Parliament.
CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said: “In what could potentially be an explosive precedent the court could rule that the decision to end the parliamentary session was an illegal act. Both English and Northern Irish courts dismissed the charge of illegal prorogation, while a Scottish court ruled it was illegal, meaning today’s decision could go either way.
