McDonnell concedes staying in the EU an option for Labour - People's Vote

McDonnell concedes staying in the EU an option for Labour

John McDonnell has conceded that the motion agreed at Labour conference last night keeps the option of a People’s Vote, including the choice of staying in the European Union, on the table. 

He made the statement at a question time event organised by the Federation of Small Businesses – see video here.

 

A spokesperson for the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“The facts are clear, as John McDonnell himself admits in this clip: the motion before Labour conference offers a clear pathway to a People’s Vote with the option of staying in the EU very firmly on the table. That is what everyone who was in the room when the motion was agreed knew they were signing off, and that is what Labour conference will be voting on tomorrow.”
