Jeremy Corbyn says staying in single market 'open for discussion'

Jeremy Corbyn says staying in single market 'open for discussion'”

Norway is a member of the single market but is not a member of the EU.

"The outcome is more important than the nomenclature on the way".

But he did admit that the result of last year's European Union referendum in which 17 million people voted leave, had to be "respected".

Speaking on today's World at One programme, the Labour boss said that a transition period was certainly needed when we quit the bloc in March 2019.

He went on: "I hope Labour MPs will recognise that we fought the election recognising the result of the referendum and seeking a tariff free access to single market in future and parliament".

The TUC's general secretary, Frances O'Grady, today said the United Kingdom would be best served by remaining a member of the single market beyond the transition period. The TUC, which represents about 50 trade union organisations, officially stated that it was in favour of remaining in the single market after a meeting on Thursday. What the repeal bill will do is determine how we leave the EU.

When asked about the killing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, Corbyn appealed to Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi to show commitment to human rights in her treatment of the Rohingyas.

Britain's Labour party chief Jeremy Corbyn has urged global community to treat Pakistan with respect for its role in war on terror, reported Radio Pakistan. Caroline Flint and Frank Field are among those Labour MPs planning to vote with the government.

But Labour has accused ministers of using the Bill to stage a enormous "power-grab" as it hands them greater powers to change laws without parliamentary scrutiny.

Flint, who represents the strongly pro-leave Don Valley constituency in Yorkshire, said on Monday she believed it was an error to oppose the bill at second reading, rather than seek to amend it later.
