London Mayor Sadiq Khan has suggested Labour may back a second referendum on the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.
Mr Khan hinted he would press for a commitment to a further national vote – on whether to accept any Brexit deal reached – to be included in the next election manifesto.
The vow came as Kezia Dugdale – Labour’s former leader in Scotland – said the public had the right to have its say in a second referendum.
Meanwhile Andrew Gwynne – Labour’s election chief and a Corbyn ally – refused to rule out a further vote – saying: ‘Who knows where we will be at the end of this process?’
At Labour’s conference there were also claims that John McDonnell – the Shadow Chancellor – had left open the prospect of a further referendum at a private meeting with business leaders.
