THE Redditch MP has said she is determined to deliver Brexit following the prime minister’s prorogation of parliament - which the supreme court ruled was unlawful.

Rachel Maclean was among the MPs who supported the act which saw Boris Johnson suspend parliament for five weeks earlier this month.

The prime minister said he wanted to suspend parliament in order to hold a Queen's Speech to introduce the new government's legislation.

However, judges ruled the prorogation was unlawful saying it 'frustrated' the ability of parliament to carry out its constitutional function in the run up to Brexit on October 31.

Speaker of the Commons, John Bercow, recalled parliament earlier this week.

Boris Johnson has been called on to resign in the wake of the decision.

Mrs Maclean said: “I have the highest respect for our judiciary and the independence of our courts.

"We are a country where the rule of law is upheld and obeyed.

“On Wednesday I returned to Parliament where I continued to work hard on my constituents behalf. It’s important to point out that my work didn’t stop when Parliament wasn’t sitting. I was back in the constituency, where I live, visiting businesses, charities and helping residents in my regular surgeries."

She added: "I was elected in 2017 to do so much more than to just get Brexit delivered. Nevertheless, I will continue to fight to get Brexit delivered on or before October 31st, deal or no deal.

“Three years on from the referendum in which 62 per cent of voters in Redditch voted to leave the EU and we still haven’t got it done. My constituents are frustrated, I’m frustrated, but I am committed to delivering Brexit so that we can take this country forward.”
