Brexit: Give certainty on direction of travel, Cairns says

Businesses need stability after the UK government's High Court defeat over the trigger for leaving the EU, Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns has said.

He said he was disappointed that judges ruled ministers could not invoke Article 50 - starting formal Brexit negotiations - without MPs' approval.

Mr Cairns spoke to BBC Wales at a breakfast meeting with business leaders in Cardiff on Friday.

He said there was an "obligation" on all UK politicians to give businesses "certainty" on the UK's departure from the European Union.
