  • Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has faced criticism for his Brexit stance

Mr McDonnell rejected the claims, insisting he had not called for anyone to be sacked. In March he said Labour was "not a remain party now", but on Sky he said: "We have always been a remain and reform party".

Lawyers representing Labour have now sent some of the former staffers letters threatening to sue them and accusing them of "wantonly disregarding their obligations by selectively leaking information to the media", the report said.

Mr McDonnell also said Labour would break up the Treasury and base part of it in northern England to improve decisions on spending a new fund created to put £250bn into infrastructure over 10 years.

Labour has been hit by an outbreak of infighting amid reports of a "civil war" over the future of Jeremy Corbyn's closest aides.

But shadow cabinet minister Barry Gardiner played down claims of a "civil war" and defended the party's use of gagging clauses.

"Every day I think that UK Labour can't possibly sink to a deeper low. I have not told anyone to be sacked or anything like that".

"The real divide in this country is not within the Labour Party, the real divide in this country is between what the Conservatives are trying to do with our country and the rest".

Shadow global trade secretary Barry Gardiner defended the party's use of gagging clauses, insisting they were not being used "to hide anything that is illegal or improper".

"We will call a no confidence vote when we believe that those Conservative members of parliament who have said that they would support a no confidence motion in the government in order to stop a no deal are likely to support it", Gardiner told Sky News.

BBC TV's Panorama investigation is set to air on Wednesday and is expected to be critical of Labour and feature further evidence that Corbyn advisers intervened in disciplinary procedures to protect members accused of anti-Semitism.

A party spokesperson told British media: "It appears these disaffected former officials include those who have always opposed Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, worked to actively undermine it, and have both personal and political axes to grind".

A Panorama spokesman said: "The Labour Party is criticising a programme they have not seen".

Grieve, who has said he would vote against a Conservative government in a confidence vote if necessary to try and prevent a no deal, told BBC Radio: "We are going to have in the course of the next twenty four hours an important bill on Northern Ireland".

Since his election in 2015 to head Labour, Corbyn has fought allegations that his critical attitude toward Israel and alleged tolerance of anti-Semitism have injected Jew-hatred into the heart of the party.

Earlier this year, in response to fears it was losing support to pro-remain parties such as the Liberal Democrats, Labour shifted its Brexit stance and agreed that any Brexit deal passed by parliament should be put to the people in a second referendum. He said they are also looking to "create options.so that no deal isn't the only option we face on October 31".

Mr McDonell said Labour had to decide on its Brexit policy "sooner rather than later" because the new prime minister could call a snap election.

He said he would vote to stay in the European Union in another referendum and "would want to campaign for Remain".

"Everything about Jeremy is about building consensus and I think on this issue you need to bring people with you".
