UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he is “very happy” to meet Theresa May after she offered to sit down with him to agree a plan which allows the UK to leave the EU with a deal.

Mr Corbyn said: “We will meet the Prime Minister.

“We recognise that she has made a move, I recognise my responsibility to represent the people that supported Labour in the last election and the people who didn’t support Labour but nevertheless want certainty and security for their own future and that’s the basis on which we will meet her and we will have those discussions.”

Mr Corbyn also said he would not set any “limits” ahead of the meeting with Mrs May, but that his principles ahead of it were to recognise the “needs of the people that elected all MPs to Parliament and the need to avoid the dangers of crashing out”.

He also warned that Labour would “hold in reserve” the option of tabling a confidence motion in the Government if it “proves it is incapable of commanding a majority in the House of Commons”.
