UK government will introduce Brexit bill 'within days'

UK government will introduce Brexit bill 'within days'The announcement comes in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling the PM needs Parliament's approval before triggering Article 50, Sky News reports.

The Government has announced it will introduce a "straightforward" bill on triggering the process for leaving the European Union "within days".

Brexit Secretary David Davis said the Supreme Court's ruling that Theresa May needs the approval of Parliament to trigger Article 50, the formal mechanism for leaving the European Union, will not derail the PM's timetable.

Mr Davis said the judgment did not affect the fact Britain will be leaving the EU in line with the result of last year's referendum, telling MPs: "There can be no turning back.

"The point of no return was passed on June 23 last year."
