Brexit - Karen Lumley MP regrets decision of High Court that Parliament must vote to trigger Article 50

Redditch County MP Karen Lumley has reacted strongly today (Thursday, 3 November 2016) to news that the High Court has ruled MPs should vote to activate Article 50 to commence EU exit proceedings.

Remain supporters brought the case before the High Court and a statement is to be made to MPs on Monday, but Karen said: "The Remain campaign cannot and should not be fighting the will of the British people with more and more process. Attempts to derail, undermine or delay the exiting of the EU is a direct contradiction of the say of the British people, and this is unacceptable."

Karen added that the retention of jobs at Nissan, robust business investment and recent GDP figures were a vote of confidence from industry and consumers, which is good news for the UK economy and the economy of her Redditch constituency.

"Today's decision from the High Court threatens to sink the ship when it's heading home to port. This is why I believe the Government is right to appeal the decision of the High Court, which ruled in favour of those who do not want to see a flourishing Britain outside of the EU," she added.
