"I voted remain last time, and I'd vote Remain again".

Her position also effectively rules out alternative Brexit proposals put forward by rebel eurosceptic members of her own party, which are based on a wide-ranging free trade agreement similar to that agreed between the European Union and Canada.

The government's advisers said in their report that evidence suggested high-skilled migrants had a more positive impact on productivity than lower-skilled workers from overseas. We will challenge this Government.

"It's a hypothetical question", he said.

The motion's wording was agreed on Monday after five hours of intense talks and it disappointed many party members, who had hoped for a firm commitment to a second vote on a final Brexit deal, including the option to remain in the EU.

Sir Keir won a standing ovation from a large majority of delegates, though some remained firmly in their seats.

On the eve of his speech to the Labour conference in Liverpool, Mr Corbyn said his MPs would be ordered to vote against any Brexit deal that fails to meet the party's six tests.

Brexiteers accept there is likely to be some short-term economic pain but say the government is trying to scare voters about the impact of a no-deal Brexit.

He added: "What are we supposed to do - keep quiet and say nothing and leave it to the incompetence of this government?"

After leaving the stage, the young socialist met and was warmly greeted by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who had in the past made leaving the European Union a left-wing cause and had been an outspoken European Union critic his whole political career, voting against EEC membership in 1975 - until he became leader of the Labour Party, where his position has remained unclear.

The Labour leader cited deindustrialisation and anger at the loss of quality skilled jobs as factors behind the 2016 referendum result. "What we've said all options must be considered if and when this government collapses or its negotiations collapse - the options are still there".
