But Mr Corbyn is under pressure to clarify the position in favour of staying after Mr McDonnell argued that if Labour MPs linked up with pro-Remain Tories to vote down the Government's policy of leaving the customs union, it could drive Mrs May from power.
He suggested that Labour could back an amendment by pro-EU Tory MP Anna Soubry to a trade bill now going through parliament, demanding May "take all necessary steps" to secure a trade agreement that "enables the United Kingdom to participate after exit day in a customs union with the EU".
Heightening the prospect of a parliamentary defeat on the issue for Mrs May, Sir Keir suggested Labour could back Ms Soubry's move.
