Supreme Court decision demonstrates we need no fault divorces

Richard Burgon MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, commenting on the Supreme Court’s decision not to allow a divorce on grounds of unhappiness, said:

“Today’s ruling underlines why our divorce laws need to change urgently. Labour is committed to introducing no fault divorce proceedings. The Conservatives should stop denying people this basic right and immediately agree to do the same, so that our divorce laws are fit for the 21st century.”
