Junior shadow ministers Yvonne Fovargue, Emma Lewell-Buck, Justin Madders, and Stephanie Peacock also voted against the second referendum amendment.

Alastair Campbell, a leading figure in the People’s Vote campaign, said it was wrong to press a second referendum amendment when the issue on Thursday was an extension to article 50.
