Yes, in principle. But not quite yet.

Jeremy Corbyn says Labour will back a public vote on Brexit - though he doesn't say exactly how May didn't secure any concessions from EU at summit in Egypt EU Council President Tusk backs an extension to Brexit day; lawmakers will try to force May into an extension on Wednesday.

What he exactly said was that he would support an amendment that supports a "public vote to prevent a damaging Tory Brexit".

"But still, the Labour frontbench can't bring itself to do so without pointless, time-wasting conditions".

This is not decided.

"There's no turning back for Jeremy now", Kyle said. He also said Labour will support an amendment taking a "no deal" outcome off the table.

Will residents of the United Kingdom get a do-over on Brexit?

A YouGov poll in January commissioned by the People's Vote campaign but conducted independently suggested 47 percent of the public backed a new vote.

And, it’s important to account for the time and effort spent by administrative staff handling these denied claims. They also have the potential to adversely affect patients’ opinions about the organization.

"It is welcome news that the Labour Party is now, at long last, signalling it will accept the principle of giving the public the final say on Brexit", he said.

Corbyn is a lifelong opponent of Britain's European Union membership and has until now resisted attempts to get him to back a fresh vote on leaving the bloc - even though it is the policy the party agreed to a year ago.

Probably not, although it is not certain.

With several more Labour MPs threatening to quit unless Corbyn toughens his stance on the issue, the announcement appeared timed to stem the growing rebellion ahead of a "meaningful vote" next month.

Only a handful of Tories support a second referendum - probably fewer than 10 - so without the support of Downing Street, it remains very unlikely to pass the Commons even with Scottish National party and Liberal Democrat support.

It has been suggested Labour could face another wave of defections if the leadership fails to move towards another vote. That's the idea behind a suggestion by Labour MPs Peter Kyle and Phil Wilson - that they should offer to vote for May's Brexit deal in exchange for her agreeing to a referendum on it.

Without support from the Labour Party, there is little chance of a second referendum taking place.

When asked if Labour wanted a new vote, the party's deputy leader Tom Watson told the BBC that they were "moving in that direction".
