The Lord Chancellor Elizabeth Truss has issued a statement following the Supreme Court judgment on Article 50.
The 11 justices of the Supreme Court heard evidence over four days in December 2016 before handing down their judgement today (24 January 2017).
The Lord Chancellor, MP for South West Norfolk, called the justices “people of integrity and impartiality”, and pledged that the government will respect the decision of the highest court in the country.
Our independent judiciary is the cornerstone of the rule of law and is vital to our constitution and our freedoms. The reputation of our judiciary is unrivalled the world over, and our Supreme Court justices are people of integrity and impartiality.
While we may not always agree with judgments, it is a fundamental part of any thriving democracy that legal process is followed. The government has been clear that it will respect the decision of the court.

Theresa May has described Lincoln City's FA Cup shock defeat of Ipswich Town a "fitting tribute" to former manager Graham Taylor, who died at the age of 72 last week.
Non-league City beat Championship side Ipswich Town 1-0 in a third round replay at Sincil Bank, thanks to Nathan Arnold's stoppage time goal.
It means the Imps have reached the fourth round of the famous cup competition for the first time since 1976, when Taylor was manager.
The Prime Minister made her remarks following a question by Lincoln MP Karl McCartney, who likened the football team's success to the government's 12-point plan for Brexit.
"Can I join you in congratulating Lincoln City on their victory last night, and say I think it was a fitting tribute to Graham Taylor that they won that match."

An inmate at HMP Woodhill was caught with a copy of al Qaida magazine Inspire, the Ministry of Justice has revealed.
New figures reveal a number of instances of the banned publication being discovered at high-security prisons over the past five years.
The inmate at HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes was found with a copy in 2013. Other prisoners at HMP Manchester, Belmarsh Prison in London and HMP Frankland in Durham also had the magazine confiscated.
The magazine formed part of the prisoners' defence paperwork, but possession of it could be a criminal offence. In each case it was removed.
The information was released in response to a parliamentary question tabled by shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon.
