Statement by the First Minister: High Court Ruling on UK Government triggering Article 50
Responding to the High Court ruling, the First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones said:
“The High Court ruling is extremely clear - the UK Government cannot trigger Article 50 using the Crown prerogative. Indeed, this is consistent with many of the arguments made by the Leave campaign themselves about Parliamentary sovereignty. It is a mistake, in my view, to challenge such a clear ruling and we should now try and move ahead to develop a fuller understanding of the UK Government’s position.
“The position of the Welsh Government has been consistent throughout – we accept the decision made by the people and will not work against the referendum result - we are working hard to get the best possible exit terms for Wales. However, it is important that votes take place in all four nations to endorse the UK negotiating position.”
