Jeremy Corbyn visited Coventry University last week to outline Labour's latest stance on Brexit.

The Labour leader was at Coventry's National Transport Design Centre where he said his party wanted a new no tariff trade deal with Europe that would involve no taxes on imports or exports of goods to the UK.  This would be achieved by the United Kingdom forming a Customs Union with the European Union, which means a group of states that have agreed to charge the same import duties as each other and to allow free trade between themselves.  This would also mean there would be no need for a hard border with Northern Ireland.  He also stated he wanted all political parties to put the people's interests first in Brexit negotiations. 

Many students turned out to see Mr Corbyn, who followed in Prince William and Kate's recent footsteps by touring the new Science and Health building on the Coventry University campus.
