Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake has called for John McDonnell to give an "unequivocal guarantee” that Labour will back a People’s Vote.
Tom Brake said:
“I am glad McDonnell is being persuaded by the Liberal Democrat case for a People’s Vote, but he and the Labour leadership must get off the fence now. The public will never forgive Labour if they lose their bottle on a People’s Vote and enable Theresa May’s damaging Brexit deal.
“McDonnell and the Labour leadership need to stop playing politics at a time of national crisis. There is no deal that will protect jobs and the economy as well as the current deal the UK has within the EU.
“The Liberal Democrats can guarantee the public we will fight for them to have the final say, including the option to remain. Labour should give that unequivocal guarantee too.”
