Labour must “wholeheartedly back” membership of the Single Market

Responding to Jeremy Corbyn’s speech to Labour Party Conference today, Pat McFadden MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:

“EU trade and EU immigration are issues that must be considered together, not apart.

“Britain needs to be part of the EU Single Market, while recognising concerns over migration and seeking reform.

“So while I welcome Jeremy’s support for the return of the Migration Impact Fund, other changes must be considered. And Labour must wholeheartedly back Britain’s place in the Single Market.”
