The Government’s appeal against the High Court decision starts on Monday 5 August. Is it scheduled to last for four days.
The issue for the Supreme Court to decide is this:
Does the Government have power to give notice pursuant to Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union of the United Kingdom's intention to withdraw from the European Union, without an Act of Parliament providing prior authorisation to do so?
This is being regarded as one of the most important cases relating to constitutional law in a generation. 11 Supreme Court judges will sit on the case. A decision is expected in early to mid-January.
