Glostays (the Gloucestershire-wide campaign group to stay in the EU) has welcomed today's judgement by the Supreme Court that Parliament is sovereign and therefore must be the body to trigger article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty to initiate negotiations to leave the European Union.

Triggering Article 50 is the first step towards leaving the EU, as voted on in last year's referendum. However, the Government sought to right to trigger article 50 without formal consent from Parliament. An act which has now been confirmed as unlawful.

Glostays (the Gloucestershire-wide campaign group to stay in the EU) has condemned Theresa May's announcement on Tuesday that the Government plan's to take the UK out of the Single Market as part of its negotiation plans for leaving the European Union.

The Single Market is the part of the European Union that Remain groups were most keen to retain in brexit negotiations due to its benefits for the UK economy.
