LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s opposition Labour Party will seek an emergency debate on Brexit next week, the party’s trade spokesman Barry Gardiner said on Thursday, outlining plans which could give them an opening to pass legislation to block a no-deal Brexit.

“On Monday, we will introduce what is known as a Standing Order Section 24 Motion and that would be to try and have an emergency debate,” Gardiner told Sky News.
