Parliament must consent to Brexit

The Supreme Court has ruled that parliament must vote on whether the government can trigger the process of leaving the European Union.

The matter will be put before the House of Commons for MPs to debate the issue as Prime Minister Theresa May looks to trigger Article 50 in March.

Supreme Court President Lord Neuberger said: “By a majority of eight to three, the Supreme Court today rules that the government cannot trigger Article 50 without an Act of Parliament authorising it to do so.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “Labour respects the result of the referendum and the will of the British people and will not frustrate the process for invoking Article 50.”
