Vince Cable, Jeremy Corbyn's empty chairLiberal Democrat leader Vince Cable attended the Single Market Summit this morning, the start of a cross-party initiative between opposition party leaders to oppose the Conservatives' hard Brexit. To the anger of many Labour MPs, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn refused to attend.

Commenting, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said:

"This is a good, positive step to parliamentary co-ordination between opposition parties against the Conservative Brexit. There are four parties here who are putting their political differences to one side for the good of the country.

"I would urge the Labour leadership to do the same and get involved - their membership and most of their MPs would like them to fight to remain in the Single Market and Customs Union."
