Sir Keir’s comments highlight the split at the heart of Labour over Brexit between Mr Corbyn, who is considered more eurosceptic, and his predominantly pro-European shadow cabinet.

The divisions over the issue are such that the policy was not set out fully in Labour’s election manifesto, which instead referred generally to “retaining the benefits of the single market”.

During an interview on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, Sir Keir said Theresa May had “alienated our allies in Europe” with her Brexit approach.
