Sir Keir Starmer will today promise that a Labour government would not bring back EU freedom of movement as he attempts to draw a line under the party’s Brexit divisions. The Labour leader will deliver a speech at the Centre for European Reform think-tank this evening in which he will set out a five point plan to “Make Brexit Work”. He will say that under Labour, the UK would not rejoin the EU and nor would it join the bloc’s single market or customs union. And on migration, he will say: “We will not return to freedom of movement to create short term fixes.”
