Rule of law is not negotiable

Controversy this week surrounding plans by the government to alter the Brexit withdrawal agreement in breach of international law led to us issuing a statement.

Law Society of England and Wales president Simon Davis said: “The rule of law is not negotiable. This why I wish to echo the concerns raised in Parliament by the chair of the Justice Select Committee.

“Our commitment to the rule of law is key to attracting international business to the UK and to maintaining faith in our justice system.”
