The Labour leader has backed a second referendum on Brexit.

He said if Theresa May’s Brexit deal gets through Parliament “there must be a confirmatory public vote”.

Speaking in the Commons, Mr Corbyn said: “The Prime Minister’s botched deal provides no certainty or guarantees for the future and was comprehensively rejected by this House.

The move is widely believed to be a move to keep MPs on side and stop more from leaving to join the pro-EU Independent Group.
Seven Labour MPs quit to join the new group, all of whom have supported a referendum.
