Boris Johnson has said that he “strongly disagrees” with the Supreme Court ruling but that Parliament “will come back”.
Speaking in New York, the British Prime Minister said: “Obviously this is a verdict that we will respect and we respect the judicial process.
“I have to say that I strongly disagree with what the justices have found. I don’t think that it’s right but we will go ahead and of course Parliament will come back.”
Mr Johnson is set to return to London in time for the resumption of parliament tomorrow at 11.30am after a series of bilateral meetings with world leaders including Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.
