LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday there was no basis for bringing her twice-defeated Brexit deal back to parliament for a third vote, a party spokesman said.

Corbyn and May met for more than hour in parliament and had a “frank and comprehensive exchange of views”, the spokesman said, adding that Corbyn did not accept May’s suggestion that the Withdrawal Agreement exit deal could be separated from the Political Declaration on the UK-EU future relationship.
