“The Labour Party cannot let any Brexit deal go through Parliament without being put to a public vote.

"Nearly 3 years on from the referendum, it is only right that the people have a final say on the future of their country,” says the petition.

Almost 6,000 people have signed the petition so far.

Add your voice to the call – please sign the petition.
