Attorney General Comment on Ashers’ Judgement

10 October 2018

Today the UK Supreme Court handed down judgement in the appeal brought by Ashers Bakery, and the references to the Supreme Court made by the Attorney General.

Responding to today’s decision of the Supreme Court, the Attorney General said, “I welcome the decision of the Supreme Court in the Ashers’ appeal and on my references. This decision provides an important protection against any misapplication of our equality law that would seek to compel citizens to express views with which they may disagree on grounds of their deeply held political or religious beliefs.”
