The Argyll and Bute Labour Party is calling for a referendum on Brexit, with one of the options being to stay in the EU.

The party meeting, in Inveraray last week, called for the Scottish Labour Party Conference in Dundee next month to back the move.

Rob Bray, local party secretary, said: ‘The Tory government has made a mess of these negotiations, causing division and uncertainty.

‘Whatever happens in Parliament, we need a public vote to allow the people to have their say.’
