He told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: “Let’s wait and see. I’m very keen not to get ahead of ourselves on this.
“And I’m also keen not to take levers off the table that weaken the position of the UK in Brussels.”
Judges are set to rule as early as Monday on whether Mr Johnson misled the Queen when suspending Parliament.
Boris Johnson insisted the Government had to ‘prorogue’ to clear the way for a Queen’s Speech and a new domestic agenda.
But lawyers for ‘Remain’ campaigners have repeatedly claimed the PM was desperate to silence his Brexit critics in the run up to the October 31 deadline.
