The Financial Times has the details.

On the eve of her first major trade trip as prime minister — to India — Mrs May told MPs and peers who regretted the result of the EU referendum that they had to accept the public’s vote from June.

High Court judges stunned the governmenton Thursday by pronouncing that it cannot invoke Article 50 without a vote in parliament, a decision which ministers are trying to overturn in the Supreme Court.

Mrs May said in a statement on Saturday night that her focus was to get on with delivering Brexit: “The result was clear. It was legitimate,” she said.
