Andy Burnham has warned against flirting with the idea of a British exit from the European Union and said the Labour party under his leadership would be "proudly pro-European."
Burham insisted that a British exit would put jobs and the economy at risk, and said it was time to "nail our colours firmly to the mast".
Speaking at a campaign event in Swansea, Mr Burnham said:
"To flirt with exit from the EU is to put people's jobs, communities and future prosperity at risk. This is no time to cut ourselves off from our largest market. It is time to nail our colours firmly to the mast.
"Any Labour Party I lead will be proudly pro-European and will instantly set about the task of securing our membership of the EU."
The warning comes after Mr Corbyn suggested that Labour could hold a special conference before deciding its response to any EU reform package proposed by David Cameron.
