The SNP is to table 50 amendments to the Bill to kickstart the UK's divorce talks with the European Union.

They include proposals that the UK would stay in the EU, under 'revised' membership, if MPs reject the final deal with Brussels.

Judges have ruled that MPs must have a vote before Theresa May can trigger exit negotiations.Read more: UK Government loses Supreme Court appeal over Brexit

However, the judges unanimously ruled that the Prime Minister and her ministers were “not legally compelled” to consult the Scottish Parliament as relations with the EU were a matter for the UK Government.

SNP International Affairs spokesman Alex Salmond said: “We welcome the Supreme Court’s decision and hope that their ruling brings this Tory government back to the reality that they cannot simply bypass elected Parliamentarians to fulfil their role in carrying out due and proper scrutiny of one of the biggest decisions facing the UK.

"The Prime Minister and her hard Brexit brigade must treat devolved administrations as equal partners - as indeed she promised to do.

“For over six months the concerns surrounding a hard Tory Brexit have been echoing throughout the land and yet the Prime Minister has not listened.

“If Theresa May is intent on being true to her word that Scotland and the other devolved administrations are equal partners in this process, then now is the time to show it. Now is the time to sit with the Joint Ministerial Committee and not just casually acknowledge, but constructively engage. Consultation must mean consultation.

“Our amendments will address the very serious concerns facing the UK and the very real issues that the UK government has, thus far, avoided."

The SNP will also attempt to table amendments that would force the Conservative Government to publish a White Paper on its Brexit plans before invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty and to seek the unanimous agreement of Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish ministers on those proposals.
