‘Gov’t must uphold the rule of law without fear or favour’ – Ellie Reeves on the Attorney General’s comments

Ellie Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Solicitor General, reacting to the comments made by the Attorney General on the government’s willingness to break international law, said: 

“The Attorney General has demonstrated today that she has prioritised the political priorities of the government over upholding the rule of law in order to stay in office. 

“The role of the government’s law officers is clear, they must uphold the rule of law – without fear or favour, and what we have seen today is confirmation that there is no voice in this government to defend the rule of law.”
