Jeremy Corbyn has said Labour does not support calls for a second Brexit vote amid talk of another referendum spurred by Ukip's former leader Nigel Farage.
The Labour party leader said: “We are not supporting or calling for a second referendum; what we’ve called for is a meaningful vote in parliament.”
Corbyn made the comments on ITV's Peston on Sunday show after it was revealed Farage fears the Brexit vote could be reversed if a second referendum on EU membership took place.
It had been suggested by London's Labour mayor Sadiq Khan that a second vote could form part of a Labour manifesto, though this idea has been shot down my others in the party highlighting a split on the issue.
Corbyn also said there would "obviously" have to be a customs union with the EU after Brexit but claimed there could be no membership of the Single Market.
"The Single Market is dependent of membership of the European Union. Do we have a trading relationship with Europe which is tariff free, which is based on access to that market and access of Europe to our market, yes. Do we push for that in the negotiations, yes. Is that hat we've said to the European Union in opposition, yes. So I don't quite understand why she [Nicola Sturgeon] would keep saying join the Single Market, when leaving the EU means you leave the Single Market.
Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland and leader of the SNP said staying in the Single Market and a member of the customs union would be the "least damaging" option, speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show.
She reacted to Corbyn's comments on Twitter, saying the claim was inaccurate and accused him of misleading people.
Saying this once could be a simple mistake. Continuing to say it when you know it is inaccurate can only be an attempt to mislead people. On single market, why does Corbyn insist on being so out of touch with both the views of his own supporters and the best interests of economy? https://t.co/hiLHTNpf3N— Nicola Sturgeon (@NicolaSturgeon) January 14, 2018
Backer of the Remain group Open Britain and Labour MP Chuka Umunna urged the Labour Party to support continued membership of the Customs Union and the Single Market.
