The shadow cabinet will on Wednesday discuss the plan to make Labour’s stance decisively pro-remain, the Times reported.

Labour, which along with the Conservatives saw its support slump at the European elections as voters expressed their frustration over Brexit deadlock, is divided over whether to unequivocally support holding a second referendum.
