UKIP MEP and Independent Assembly Member, Nathan Gill, has welcomed the Supreme Court's ruling on the Assembly's role in UK Government Brexit plans.
He says Welsh politicians should now get on with 'more important matters.'
Pontypridd MP Owen Smith says he will vote against triggering Article 50 when MPs debate starting the formal process of leaving the European Union.
Writing in the Guardian newspaper, the former Shadow Welsh Secretary says he can't give the go-ahead to a course of action that he believes will make people poorer.
It's likely that Mr Smith's decision will put him at odds with Labour's leadership which has said that its MPs will be expected to vote to trigger Article 50 although the party will try to amend the legislation which does that.
Former Welsh Secretary Peter Hain has also said that he will defy the Labour whip when the legislation reaches the Lords. It's thought a large number of Labour MPs could also follow suit.
Plaid Cymru are planning on tabling a motion to give the Welsh Assembly a say on triggering Brexit.
Steffan Lewis AM, the party's shadow secretary for external affairs, says Plaid will seek to a Legislative Consent Motion in a bid to allow AMs a say on triggering Article 50. This morning's Supreme Court ruling stated that the UK Government did not have to consult the devolved nations over the issue.
Mr Lewis added that giving the Assembly a say on triggering the process was a 'simple matter of democracy' and the Prime Minister should expect 'grave constitutional consequences' if Wales did not have a voice.
A legislative consent motion is a vote saying whether or not the Assembly agrees with what the UK Government is planning.
