DMH Stallard's Rustom Tata comments on the Supreme Court's ruling on Brexit

24 Jan 2017

DMH Stallard's Chairman, Rustom Tata, has been interviewed for numerous media outlets, including BBC World News and TalkRadio, on the Supreme Court's ruling that Article 50 cannot be triggered without Parliament's agreement.  Of the decision, Rustom said:

"The Supreme Court had this morning confirmed that an Act of Parliament is required before the Prime Minister can give notice of the UK's withdrawal from the EU.

"Although over the last few weeks the outcome was increasingly anticipated, the Supreme Court Justices were split 8-3, with the dissenters providing the Government with some comfort that its defence of the litigation hadn't been fatally flawed.

"Arguably, the greatest victory for the Government came in relation to the devolved Assemblies in the UK, with the Supreme Court deciding that there is no legal obligation to consult with other parts of the Union.

With a Bill to be introduced into Parliament within days, and with a united opposition, it is likely that the Prime Minister's self-imposed deadline of the end of March will be met."
