David Davis told MPs legislation authorising Article 50 would be tabled within days
This morning, the Supreme Court ruled the Government cannot invoke Article 50 and begin EU divorce talks without the prior approval of MPs and peers.
Speaking to MPs in the wake of the verdict, Mr Davis told the House of Commons: "We believe in and value the independence of our judiciary".
The Cabinet minister insisted the Government would comply by the ruling and introduce legislation "in days" in order for Parliament to consent to Article 50.
Mr Davis said the legislation would be "the most straightforward bill possible" that would aim "simply to give the Government power to invoke Article 50".
He insisted the Supreme Court ruling would not stop Britain leaving the EU.
