2. Had to look that up!

Being one not under a parliamentary system of government, itís a term unfamiliar to me.
This explains it:
https://www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/explainers/proroguing-parliament

If Iím understanding it correctly, proroguing is a suspension of both Houses of Parliament, called by the monarch (under ďadviceĒ from the prime minister). That session ends and it stops most pending legislative proposals, but parliament isnít dissolved, so MPs retain their seats.

Not clear to me whether pending legislation can be restarted where they left off when parliament is reconvened, or if it has to begin again from square one. Although I suppose thatís a technicality.
