The opposition leader said unless Theresa May offered concessions on areas such as workers' rights and the environment, he would instruct his MPs to reject the legislation.

But shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer has consistently called for a softer approach, and over the weekend he warned his party would vote against any final deal which did not satisfy six "red lines".
