UK PM to  tell EU Brexit plans remain on course

The British Prime Minister is telling Brussels her plan to leave the EU remains on course - despite a High Court setback yesterday.

Judges ruled she will need the support of Parliament before triggering the process.

The government is planning to appeal.

But former Lib Dem leader Paddy Ashdown is adamant that it is right Parliament has a role - and doesn't think MPs are interested in frustrating progress: "In that process, properly handled, I believe you can come to a constructive outcome, without too much delay, it depends on whether the government will treat the Parliament with contempt inn which case it is going to get a pretty dusty ride."
