The Lord Chancellor Elizabeth Truss has issued a statement following the Supreme Court judgment on Article 50.

The 11 justices of the Supreme Court heard evidence over four days in December 2016 before handing down their judgement today (24 January 2017).

The Lord Chancellor, MP for South West Norfolk, called the justices “people of integrity and impartiality”, and pledged that the government will respect the decision of the highest court in the country.

Our independent judiciary is the cornerstone of the rule of law and is vital to our constitution and our freedoms. The reputation of our judiciary is unrivalled the world over, and our Supreme Court justices are people of integrity and impartiality.

While we may not always agree with judgments, it is a fundamental part of any thriving democracy that legal process is followed. The government has been clear that it will respect the decision of the court.

– Liz Truss
