As I informed the House on Thursday 25 June 2020 in answer to the Urgent Question asked by Rt Hon Member for East Ham (Hansard Col. 1455, Vol. 677).

‘I hope Members will appreciate that as the judgment was passed down on Monday, it would be remiss not to afford more consideration before we press on, particularly when the Court has not called for immediate action. We will now begin the process of carefully considering possible solutions, and we will keep the House updated as progress is made.’
