Jeremy Corbyn says he does not see the 'urgency or the need' for another Scottish vote
The Labour party’s position on a second referendum has come under scrutiny during the campaign, after Mr Corbyn said he would be "absolutely fine" with a new vote and would not block it "if the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish people want it".
And yesterday Mrs Sturgeon claimed Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale was set to drop her party's opposition to a second independence referendum in the immediate aftermath of the UK's decision to quit the European Union.
Mr Corbyn has been accused of being weak over the second vote
The SNP leader and First Minister said Ms Dugdale had told her that the vote for Brexit in June 2016 "changed everything" and that "Labour should stop opposing a referendum".
Ms Dugdale denied Mrs Sturgeon’s “desperate” attempts to spread “categoric lies” to boost the SNP in Thursday’s vote.
The Labour manifesto states the party "opposes a second Scottish independence referendum".

The Labour leader makes his final address to crowds in Scotland
Hs comments, during a rally in Glasgow city centre, comes as the Scottish Secretary insisted there will be no second independence referendum in the five years as it could take until 2022 for Brexit to "play out".
David Mundell appeared to rule out the prospect of a fresh vote on the issue, saying he did "not see circumstances in which we would be having a referendum in the next five years".
But speaking this morning, Ms Sturgeon sensationally claimed Labour had a secret plan to drop its opposition to the second referendum.
She disclosed details of a telephone call in which she alleged Ms Dugdale said Brexit "changed everything" and Labour should no longer oppose an independence referendum.
