Mark Williams MP responds to Supreme Court Ruling

Commenting on the Supreme Court ruling on triggering Article 50, Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats Mark Williams, said;

“I welcome today’s Supreme Court ruling. This decision shows that the sovereignty of Parliament is paramount and that the British people must be given a voice in what happens next in the Brexit negotiations.

“Only the Liberal Democrats are calling for the people to be given a say on the final Brexit deal. This process started with democracy and must end with democracy, and we will vote against triggering Article 50 without that commitment from the UK Government.

“It would be wholly unacceptable for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to be left in the dark on this historic decision. The UK Government must absolutely respect the devolved settlement and the right of the devolved parliaments to shape our withdrawal from the EU.”
