Government attack on lawyers undermines the rule of law – David Lammy

David Lammy MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, responding to the Lord Chief Justice’s comments regarding the government’s attacks on lawyers, said:

“The Lord Chief Justice is absolutely right. Attacking lawyers for doing their job undermines the rule of law on which our society is built. 

“The Home Secretary and the Prime Minister should stop the divisive insults and issue an immediate apology for their attacks on lawyers.”
