(Reuters) – The Labour Party will not support a new referendum on Brexit in all circumstances, The Independent reported on Thursday, citing sources close to the party leadership.

The sources said Labour is not advocating a referendum on anything other than a “damaging Tory Brexit” deal, the report here said. The confirmation that Labour would only support a public vote on Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal was likely to anger Labour’s pro-European Union members of parliament, the newspaper said.
