Labour confused over Brexit as another shadow minister says Britain could stay in single market

Labour confused over Brexit as another shadow minister says Britain could stay in single market
- Speaking to the Today programme on Wednesday morning, the shadow business secretary said: "I think we accept the fact that if we are going to have impediment-free access to the single market then there will have to be some element of free movement."
The MP for Salford and Eccles continued: "It's a lot easier for business to be able to operate when it has a common set of regulations and we are calling for cooperation, whether that forms part of remaining part of the single market or having access to the single market is a moot point."

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and shadow chancellor John McDonnell have instead been adamant that leaving the Single Market will be part of Labour's Brexit plan. McDonnell told ITV's Robert Peston on Sunday he couldn't "see" staying in the Single Market "even being on the table in the negotiations," adding "I don’t think it’s feasible."
