After the unanimous ruling by 11 justices on Tuesday that the proroguing of parliament was “unlawful” the prime minister gave his reaction.
He told the BBC, “Obviously this is a verdict we will respect, we will respect the judicial process.
“I don’t think that it’s right, but we will go ahead and of course parliament will come back.
“The important thing is we get on and deliver Brexit on 31 October.
“They thought the prorogation that we chose was not something they could approve of.
“The main thing is that we will get on and deliver Brexit on 31 October, but Parliament will come back and we will respect that.”
He added, “As the law stands we leave on 31 October and I am very hopeful that we will get a deal and I think what the people of the country want is to see parliamentarians coming together working in the national interest to get this thing done and that is what we are going to do.”
Parliament will resume on Wednesday at 11:30am.
