Lord Falconer responds to resignation of the Head of the Legal Department

Lord Falconer, Labour’s Shadow Attorney General, responding to the resignation of the Head of the Legal Department, said: 

“Jonathan Jones is an impressive lawyer and a loyal civil servant. If he can’t stay in the public service, there must be something very rotten about this government. This resignation indicates that senior government lawyers think that the government are about to break the law. 

“The Government is trashing the best of the UK, we are a law abiding country and the Government have some serious questions to answer.”
