Govt 'determined' to continue with Brexit plan – May (2)


London, November 3 - British Premier Theresa May
said on Thursday the government was "determined" to continue
with its Brexit plan after the High Court ruled parliament
needed to vote on whether the country can start the process of
leaving the European Union.
The government has "no intention of letting" Thursday's
judgement "derail Article 50 or the timetable we have set out.
We are determined to continue with our plan", May's official
spokesman said.
The British premier has said she intends to trigger article
50 beginning the two-year period of formal negotiations leading
to Brexit by March 2017.
The government is appealing against the High Court ruling
to the Supreme Court, with a first hearing reportedly scheduled
next month.
The High Court decision came after a group of pro-European
activists challenged May's position that the outcome of the June
referendum on Brexit and existing ministerial powers mean the
government can start the process of leaving the EU on its own.
In the referendum Leave won by 52% to 48% for Remain.
"The most fundamental rule of the UK constitution is that
parliament is sovereign," said Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, the lord
chief justice, in delivering Thursday's judgement.
Meanwhile, May is due to have a telephone conversation with
European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker on Friday "on
the request of the British government", commission spokesperson
Margaritis Schinas said.
