We have received a general reply from the PA to Lady Hale, albeit very swiftly.
We give this below together with our reply.
Dear Helen Davies
Thank you for your email of 22 September 2019 regarding the case heard by the Supreme Court Justices earlier this week between 17th and 19th September.
As Lady Hale explained before the hearing started, the Justices had before them two appeals, one from England and Wales and one from Scotland. They both involved the same issue: whether it was lawful for the Prime Minister to advise Her Majesty to authorise the prorogation of Parliament by Order in Council.
Lady Hale continued:
“That this is a serious and difficult question of law is amply demonstrated by the fact that three senior Judges in Scotland have reached a different conclusion from three senior Judges in England and Wales. The Supreme Court exists to decide such difficult questions of law. And we shall do so in accordance with our judicial oaths: to do right to all manner of people after the laws and usages of this realm without fear or favour, affection or ill will. It is important to emphasise that we are not concerned with the wider political issues which form the context for this legal issue. As will be apparent when we hear the legal arguments, the determination of this legal issue will not determine when and how the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.”
You will be aware that the hearing has now concluded and you may view the court proceedings via our website (https://www.supremecourt.uk/live/court-01.html). The Court’s judgment will be published once it is known.
Beyond that we are not able to comment further.

and our reply
Dear Miss Onatade,
Thank you very much for your swift reply.
For the sake of the ultimate sovereignty held by the Electorate, and our rights and liberties, all we ask is that the Supreme Court Judges be given the opportunity to read and consider our email letter, for which we were unable to request a formal audience.
We believe that it is vitally important that the Lords and Ladies are aware of the gravitas of the situation.
We would be grateful for confirmation that ‘our voice’ as set out in our email letter has been forwarded to the Judges for their attention.
Just so you are aware, we have published a copy of our email letter on our web site, in order that the majority of the Electorate may too voice their opinion and support.
We have just done this and to date there are 47 comments which you are welcome to read.
