Remarks: MPs in the United Kingdom have returned to Westminster after Supreme Court ruled parliament suspension was unlawful. Government’s top lawyer Geoffrey Cox says the “definitive” legal advice he gave to Prime Minister Boris Johnson about the suspension of Parliament was supplied to the Supreme Court.
Cox considers revealing his advice to the Prime Minister. He says the advice was given in “good faith” and that the government believed its actions were “lawful and constitutional”.
He says he accepts the Supreme Court’s ruling and says the issue is “settled” although he stresses that different lawyers took different views on the issue – a reference to the earlier High Court ruling that the suspension was lawful.
