Labour to fight to keep UK in single market after Brexit

Labour will try to keep the UK in the single market and customs union after Brexit, the party’s shadow Brexit Secretary has announced.

Sir Keir Starmer has outlined his intention to try and derail the Government’s EU Withdrawal Bill – dubbed the Repeal Bill – by proposing an amendment to keep existing trading arrangements with the bloc during any transitional period.

His plan further confuses Labour’s Brexit policy and appears to contradict Jeremy Corbyn’s statement that under his leadership the UK would leave the single market.
