Supreme Court Ruling on Prorogation

The Prime Minister has been crystal clear that he fully respects the Supreme Court’s judgement, the judicial process and the Rule of Law.

While there may be disagreement about the Court’s decision, I entirely agree with the Lord Chancellor that the Rule of Law is one of the absolute foundations of our democracy and that our world-class judiciary acts free from political motivation or influence and that any personal attacks on judges are entirely unacceptable.

The outcome of the case has no effect on whether or not the UK leaves the EU. This has already been decided by the electorate in the referendum and I remain fully committed to ensuring that we leave the EU in a smooth and orderly manner at the very earliest opportunity.
