The point disputed upon the bench was, whether we could prorogue the execution of the sentence to a farther time? (T)he pursuer had only on the very day of the act led his witnesses, so that they were secure till then; and that he had a diligence; therefore craved the day might be prorogued to him for proving his exception.

This is the word that currently you will hear concerning the British Parliament. It is said that if Boris Johnson becomes prime minister, he would prorogue parliament if Britain doesn't get a good deal with the EU for Brexit.
