Jeremy Corbyn – 2019 Statement After Meeting Theresa May

Below is the text of the statement made by Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Opposition, on 3 April 2019.

There hasn’t been as much change as I expected but we will have further discussions tomorrow to explore technical issues.

I put forward the view from the Labour Party that we want to achieve a customs union with the EU, access to the Single Market and dynamic regulatory alignment, that is a guarantee of European regulations as a minimum on the environment, consumer and workers’ rights. I also raised the option of a public vote to prevent crashing out or leaving on a bad deal.
