Statement on Supreme Court Ruling

Our independent judiciary are an important institution and along with Parliament protect and promote our freedoms. The Government is right to recognise this and have said that they will implement today’s Supreme Court ruling. I will be joining MPs in Parliament tomorrow. I hope that my colleagues in all political parties with join with me, take the opportunity of Parliament meeting this week to redouble efforts to agree ‘a deal’ with the EU. This is what all Labour and Conservative MPs were elected to do at the most recent, 2017 General Election. It is in the national interest to resolve this as consensually and as soon as possible.
