London First response to the Supreme Court ruling on prorogation
24 September 2019
Commenting on the Supreme Court ruling that the Prime Minister’s decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful, London First’s Chief Executive Jasmine Whitbread said:
“With the clock ticking, today’s judgment makes it clearer than ever that our Parliamentarians should be allowed to get back to work to avoid a no deal Brexit.
“Leaving the EU without a deal in less than six weeks’ time would be a disaster for jobs and growth, hitting hard those who can afford it least. Parliament must do all it can to stop this becoming a reality.”
