BRIGHTON, England (Reuters) - Britain’s opposition Labour Party would hold a second Brexit referendum no later than six months after winning an election, Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said on Monday.

“An incoming Labour government will legislate for a referendum immediately on taking power and hold that referendum within six months,” Starmer told his party’s annual conference in Brighton.
