LONDON, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Britain's parliament needs to be recalled from its summer break immediately to discuss Brexit, the opposition Labour Party's finance spokesman John McDonnell said on Monday.

"There's a need now to bring MPs back together again, because we need time now to really have a proper debate and discussion about this," McDonnell, a senior ally of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, told BBC radio.
