Keir Starmer responds to the Attorney General’s legal advice

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to the publication of the Attorney General’s legal advice, said:

“Having reviewed the Attorney General’s legal advice, it’s obvious why it needed to be placed in the public domain. All week we have been told by Government Ministers that releasing this information could harm the national interest but the advice contains nothing of the sort.

“All this advice reveals is the central weaknesses in the Government’s deal. It is unthinkable that the Government tried to keep this information from Parliament and indeed the public before next week’s vote.”
