The deal, finalized late Friday night, gives Britain power to limit benefits to migrants entering the EU and allows the country to opt out of a historic EU pledge to create an “ever closer union among the peoples of Europe.”

The changes Cameron negotiated “are largely irrelevant to the problems most British people face and the decision we must now make,” Corbyn said in a statement. “Labour believes the EU is a vital framework for European trade and cooperation in the 21st century, and that a vote to remain in Europe is in the best interests of our people.”

“We will be campaigning to keep Britain in Europe in the coming referendum, regardless of David Cameron’s tinkering, because it brings investment, jobs and protection for British workers and consumers,” Corbyn said.
