The Government's challenge to this morning's Brexit High Court verdict will be heard in December, it has been announced.
Earlier today the High Court upheld a challenge to June's EU referendum result by investment fund manager Gina Miller, who said the Government has no right to use the Royal Prerogative to force through Brexit.
A panel of three judges sided with Miller and ruled that Prime Minister Theresa May must consult Parliament before triggering Article 50. Almost three-quarters of MPs voted to Remain in June's referendum.
Mrs May had previously promised to allow MPs a debate on the issue, but not a formal vote.
In the aftermath of the verdict, the Government said it was "disappointed" by the verdict but said it would respect the will of the British people.
