Kate Hoey has claimed that Jeremy Corbyn needs Brexit to go ahead if he is going to deliver “all of the things we want to do in a radical manifesto.”
Mr Corbyn has a history of being critical of the European Union, and voted against membership in 1975, but campaigned to Remain in the EU referendum.
Speaking on Sky News, Ms Hoey explained how Mr Corbyn needs the UK to leave the European Union. She said: “Jeremy is leader of the party.
I think instinctively if Jeremy was not leader of the party, like all 30-years I have been in Parliament, he would be in the lobby against the EU.
“All of the things we want to do in a radical manifesto, the EU is going to stop that, it is going to make it much more difficult to renationalise our railways, the state aid rules, all of those things.
“So, if we are going to have a radical Labour Government, we want to be out of the EU.”
She added: “I think Jeremy Corbyn has played a very clever game actually trying to keep the party together.
“There is no doubt about it, in Parliament, Labour MPs are a majority wanting to stay in the European Union.

“The majority of their constituencies voted to leave, and they know people out there up in the north of England the Midlands and so on will feel desperately let down if somehow this leave vote, which they were told was going to be the final vote, that they would be listened to.
“Many of them had never voted before, and they came out and they said ‘our vote matters, our vote is going to matter this time so we are going to vote’.
“If that is taken away from them, I think there is grave, grave repercussions, not just for Labour areas, where people voted, but also in Conservative areas where they were told the same.”
On Friday, the Labour Party leader suggested delaying Britain’s departure from the European Union if they came into power.
He told Sky News: “If we go into Government straight away, we would start negotiating straight away.

“If it meant holding things a bit longer to do it, of course. The urgency would be to say ‘these are what we want to achieve, these are our objectives’.
“I have made that very clear. Europe is very well aware of that. It has made clear by me and by my team.”
Mr Corbyn also hinted that he could trigger a confidence motion in the Government should Mrs May fail to get her Brexit deal through the House of Commons at the crucial meaningful vote on Tuesday.
He said: “You will have to wait and see…it is a matter of confidence because if the Government can’t command a majority of the House, and last week were found in contempt of the House on a motion there, then in normal political times in British history that Government would then resign and either make way for another Government or resign altogether and call a general election.”

MPs will vote on Tuesday on the Prime Minister’s Brexit agreement with the European Union.
Pro-Brexit MPs in the Conservative Party have urged the Prime Minister to renegotiate the controversial backstop element in the Withdrawal Agreement, with many saying they cannot support the deal.
On Thursday, Mrs May signalled that MPs could be given the power to decide whether the UK goes into a controversial backstop arrangement regarding the Northern Irish border.
The Prime Minister indicated Parliament could choose between triggering the backstop or extending a transition period after the UK formally quits the EU
