Response to Supreme Court ruling
President of the Law Society of England and Wales, Simon Davis said: “Whatever you think of the decision, today’s Supreme Court ruling is a vital expression of the checks and balances that exist in our democracy.
“Our court system and our judges are there so the law laid down by parliament can be interpreted. In a mature democracy it is crucial that the independence of this process is maintained.
“A judge’s ruling is an expression of the law – not of their personal opinion. It would be disingenuous to conflate the two.”
