Britain's Labour to guarantee European Union citizens rights if wins election

During Mr Corbyn's leadership campaign a year ago, Mr Cash said: "Critics of Jeremy Corbyn are insulting the intelligence of voters and alienating millions of Labour supporters".

He said it was vital to get the "best deal we can" and the Government had to be prepared to return to talks if what was on the table is rejected by Parliament. "A failure by both Corbyn and May to appear in the television debates would be a dereliction of their duty as party leaders". He said that Mrs May would win the election.

In response, Mr Farron said the Labour leader should face his opponents and defend his policies.

However, the shadow Brexit secretary was clear that under a labour government, free movement would become a thing of the past.

"It'll be Theresa May if the polls are right".

A Labour government would rule out a "Whitehall power grab" and automatically devolve all powers returning from Brussels after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, the party's Brexit spokesman has pledged.

Some TV companies have threatened to "empty chair" May from any TV debate, to embarrass her into agreeing.

The YouGov research revealed women between 18 and 40-years-old were especially pro-Labour, with 42 percent favouring Corbyn's party compared to 27 percent supporting the Tories.

He said: 'What the Tories have done very cleverly is give people a national interest reason for voting Tory.

"Until you realise that she has tied her own hands in the negotiation, the Prime Minister, by saying I'm not going to put the single market on the table".

The party's Brexit spokesman, Keir Starmer, said a Labour government would seek to retain the benefits of single-market membership.

The UK could relinquish its right to cut post-Brexit global trade deals if it gets a good withdrawal agreement with the EU, Labour has suggested.

Mr Starmer said the United Kingdom should be willing to forego striking its own trade deals with other countries in order to secure the best possible trading access with the EU.

The survey also showed that UK IFAs are broadly optimistic about the year ahead, with 81% stating that the economic growth will remain unchanged or strengthen over the next year.

But she may also face election fatigue among an electorate who voted in the European Union referendum less than a year ago, and some commentators say her warnings that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn might win the vote ring hollow in light of opinion polls.

Pressed on whether this could mean abandoning Britain's ability to cut non-EU trade deals, Sir Keir said: "We have to get the right deal with the EU".
