Following Tom Watson’s appearance on the Andrew Marr show this morning, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:
"Today Tom Watson has offered a vague and convoluted statement that Labour will have a People’s Vote in their manifesto if there is a snap General Election. However, knowing Corbyn’s reluctant track record so far, he must come out and unequivocally state this is the case.
"It is fine for the Labour shadow cabinet to say a People’s Vote should be in their manifesto, but they do not have the power to say it will be.
"We have seen Labour let down the British public before, they must not be allowed to do it time and again. Corbyn must commit and ensure his party join the Liberal Democrats in guaranteeing that a People’s Vote will be in their manifesto."
