LONDON – Britain's opposition Labour Party says it won't try to block a referendum on whether Britain should remain in the 28-nation European Union.

The party's acting leader, Harriet Harman, offered support for the vote in a commentary in the Sunday Times — a U-turn on Labour's previous stance. The decision removes a potential obstacle to the referendum, which will be held by the end of 2017.
