Will the Government act on a Brexit vote?

When we had a vote on the alternative voting system the wording of the act that allowed that vote contained a regulatory obligation on the Government of the day to implement the changes to the electoral system if the vote was in favour of the alternative vote.

The terms agreed by the UK Parliament for the EU referendum result if Leave wins is not protected in that way because there is no automatic obligation on the Government or indeed Parliament to implement the mandate of the British people to leave the EU!
