UK's Labour says it will back new Brexit vote

As a result, Labour plans to put forward or support an amendment to the deal on holding another public vote "to prevent a damaging Tory Brexit being forced on the country", he said.

If the plan is rejected, Labour will then support a second referendum.

Welsh Labour supporters of a new referendum on the European Union have welcomed moves by the party frontbench to support a fresh vote.

Theresa May's office said government estimates of the economic impact of a no-deal Brexit will be published "very shortly".

May's hands are increasingly tied by an unpopular divorce deal she sealed with the European Union but that Parliament has rejected by a landslide. "The only sensible and democratically forward thing to do is to put this back to the people for a final say", she said.

"I believe that in the situation we are in, an extension would be a rational solution", Tusk told reporters at an EU-Arab League summit in Egypt, acknowledging that he and May had discussed prolonging the negotiations.

But the prime minister, who will update MPs on the latest negotiations on Tuesday, has insisted the United Kingdom can still leave next month as planned.

"We have voted against the deal because it didn't meet our tests".

"Wake up. This is real". The question now is whether May will - either willingly or by force via the new Cooper amendment - replace her "my deal or no deal" ultimatum with a new choice: "my deal or delay Brexit, possibly for many, many months".

The government source said any ministers who backed the amendment "will be expected to resign".

One way or another, we will do everything in our power to prevent no deal and oppose a damaging Tory Brexit based on Theresa May's overwhelmingly rejected deal.

Even if all 246 Labour MPs voted for one - along with the 65 other opposition MPs who might back one, and around 10 members of May's Conservative party - they would only just have a majority.

The announcement from Corbyn means that Labour will for the first time whip its MPs to back a "People's Vote" in a Parliamentary vote. Due to take place this week, the second meaningful vote will instead be held some time before 12th March, or (most likely) on that date.

Last night the shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry said Labour would seek a "deal or remain" referendum.

"There will be no Tory Brexit without it being a vote in the public".
