Caroline Lucas MP has responded to the High Court ruling that the Government does not have power to trigger Article 50 without a vote in Parliament.
Lucas, Green Party co-leader, said:
We welcome this ruling which shows that Ministers do not have the power to trigger Article 50 without consulting Parliament.
Parliament must have the opportunity to debate and vote on triggering Article 50, rather than a group of Ministers at the top table having total control over this country’s future place in the world.
The Green Party will continue to fight to protect free movement, workers’ rights and the vital environmental protections we currently have as part of the EU.
