Britain's Labour to back proposal to withhold support for Brexit deal

LONDON, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Britain’s main opposition Labour Party will support a proposal made by a former Conservative lawmaker to withhold support for Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal on Saturday until the formal ratification legislation has been passed by parliament.

A Labour spokeswoman said the party was backing the amendment to “stop Boris Johnson from sneaking through a no deal crash out ... and to stop a blackmail vote between his sell out deal and no deal.” (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper, Editing by Kylie MacLellan)
