The Government is set to lose the legal case on Brexit, according to sources
Cabinet ministers have privately accepted that they will lose the supreme court case and are working on several versions of a new bill that would be needed in order to trigger Article 50.
The Guardian has reported that the Government believes seven of the 11 judges will uphold the high court’s demand that Theresa May must secure the consent of MPs and peers before Article 50 is triggered.
It is not yet clear when the judges will deliver their verdict but it is believed ministers have requested early sight of the judgment.
