UK parties clash over Brexit in TV debate

London, Dec 2 (TIWN) Leading figures from the UK's political parties have clashed on Brexit, the National Health Services (NHS) and terror legislation in the latest televised general election debate, it was reported on Monday.

Labour's Richard Burgon declined to say during the ITV programme which way he would vote in the EU referendum his party is promising, if it wins power.  Tory Rishi Sunak was pushed to rule out a no-deal Brexit if the Conservatives won, but did not give a direct answer.  The UK goes to the polls on 12 December.  Labour's shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon defended Jeremy Corbyn's decision to remain neutral in the event of a second referendum, saying the Labour leader was "determined to bring the country together and heal divisions, not try to exploit them for votes".
