Full text of the letter

Further to our correspondence last week, I would like to invite you to a meeting to discuss all tactics available to prevent No Deal.

The country is heading into a constitutional and political storm, so it is vital that we meet urgently, before Parliament returns.

The chaos and dislocation of Boris Johnson’s No Deal Brexit is real and threatening, as the government’s leaked Operation Yellowhammer dossier makes crystal clear. That’s why we must do everything we can to stop it.

I hope you are able to attend the meeting, which we will hold in my office on Tuesday 27th August at 12pm.

Please confirm your attendance by email.

Yours sincerely,

Jeremy Corbyn
