In a speech to the Fabian Society's annual conference in London on Saturday, Streeting will say: "On the UK's future relationship with the European Union - the single biggest issue facing our country in a generation - we find ourselves in the awful position where it is the Labour party that now stands as the single biggest barrier to the UK's membership of the single market and customs union".

But less than half an hour later Mr Corbyn rejected her demand, saying he did not "understand" why she was focusing on the single market when Brexit meant leaving it.

They say the change to the Bill would prevent ministers being able to take the United Kingdom out of the single market and customs union without the approval of Parliament.

Speaking on Peston on Sunday, he continued: "The single market is dependent on membership of the European Union".

But when asked about Labour's stance could change in the future Mr Corbyn failed to deliver a clear response.

"As for a second referendum, the question is are you talking about the divorce or the final relationship, because the final relationship will be agreed in many years' time", she said.

"At the moment... We proceed in good faith".

Jeremy Corbyn has said Labour does not support calls for a second Brexit vote amid talk of another referendum spurred by Ukip's former leader Nigel Farage. "We are leaving the European Union".

A ComRes poll for the Daily Mirror suggested public opinion on Brexit has shifted and if a second vote was held 55% would vote to remain in the European Union and 45% to leave.

Labour's Brexit policy is now the single biggest barrier, to Britain remaining in the European Union single market, the Ilford North MP Wes Streeting will claim on Saturday. 87% of party members want to stay in the single market, a recent poll showed.

Sir Keir said he wanted the same trade outcomes as backbench critics calling for the party to campaign to stay in the single market and customs union.
