UK opposition Labour says it will back call for second Brexit referendum

LONDON (Reuters) – British opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will tell his lawmakers on Monday that the party will back a call for a second referendum on Brexit, his party said.

Parliament is due to debate and vote on the next steps on Brexit on Wednesday, and lawmakers are expected to put down proposals, or amendments, including those which would demand the exit deal is put to a public vote.

“We are committed to also putting forward or supporting an amendment in favor of a public vote to prevent a damaging Tory (Conservative) Brexit being forced on the country,” Corbyn will tell a meeting of his Labour lawmakers, according to extracts.
