Jeremy Corbyn on parliament voting to take no deal off the table

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, speaking after tonight’s votes in the Commons, said:

“Tonight Parliament has voted to remove the immediate threat of crashing out without a deal on 29 March. After months of refusing to take the chaos of no deal off the table, the prime minister must now face the reality that no deal is not an option.

“I will meet the prime minister and others from across parliament to find a sensible Brexit solution that works for the whole country.

“That solution should be based around Labour’s alternative plan of a customs union with a U.K. say, a strong single market relationship and a cast iron  guarantee on workers’ rights, consumer standards and environmental protections.”
