72 Labour MPs so far, around a quarter of the parliamentary party, have publicly expressed support for a fresh referendum on the UK’s relationship with the EU, known as the ‘people’s vote’ campaign.

LabourList understands that a higher number of Labour MPs privately back the idea – this list is only for those who have gone on the record with their endorsement.

Below is the full list, which will be updated when necessary.
