LONDON (Reuters) - UK Labour opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn MP has invited leaders of other political parties and senior lawmakers from across parliament to meet to discuss all tactics available to stop Britain leaving the EU without a deal, Labour said on Wednesday.

The meeting will take place next Tuesday at 1100 GMT, it said.

“The country is heading into a constitutional and political storm, so it is vital that we meet urgently, before parliament returns (on Sept. 3),” Corbyn wrote in the invitation.
