Government Brief after the Supreme Court ruling (September 24 2019)

We strongly disagree with this judgment, and we in the UK will not be deterred from getting on and delivering on the will of the people to come out of the EU on 31 October, because that it was we were mandated to do.

 

And we will simultaneously refuse to be deterred from delivering on what will be an exciting and dynamic domestic agenda, intended to make our country even more attractive to live in and to invest in.

 

We are pushing on with investing in our NHS, reducing violent crime and cutting the cost of living and to do that we will need a Queen’s Speech to set out what we are going to do.

 

People want to see us delivering a strong domestic agenda and they want to see Brexit delivered by 31 October, and you’ll hear more about some of these plans in Manchester at our party conference next week.

 

The Liberal Democrats used their conference to say they would revoke Article 50 and Jeremy Corbyn used Labour’s conference to decide not to take a view on Brexit. We will use our conference to set out our positive vision for the UK after Brexit.
