Response to High Court ruling on Article 50


The High Court has ruled that the government must seek the authorisation of our sovereign parliament in order to trigger Article 50 and begin the process of leaving the European Union.

The Labour Party accepts the result of the referendum and so do I. I will vote to trigger Article 50 on behalf of people in Heywood and Middleton, a majority of whom voted to leave the EU. 

I want the government to now focus on getting the best deal for Britain. I and my Labour colleagues will fight throughout the Brexit negotiations for a deal which protects jobs, the economy and workers' rights.
