Ed Miliband: Jeremy Corbyn is firmly for Remain

Jeremy Corbyn is firmly for the Remain campaign, former Labour leader Ed Miliband has said.

Mr Miliband's comments came following a speech he made at UK in a Changing Europe, at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster.

While Mr Miliband stressed that the current Labour leader was "criss-crossing the country" throwing his weight behind the Remain campaign, he conceeded that "we all need to do more" and that the June 23 referendum is "even more important than the General Election".

Remaining in the European Union is better for jobs, better for rights of working people. We really fear the impact of leaving the European Union.
