"Today is a chance for Labour to announce to EU leaders they will now fight to stay in the single market and customs union, and support a referendum on the deal.

"Anything less would be a betrayal of the millions of voters who backed Labour and don't want to see a destructive Brexit.

"The best way to prevent a damaging Brexit is to give the British people the final say with a chance to stay in the EU."
