LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Theresa May believes she can win a vote in parliament on her Brexit deal and will focus her efforts on persuading members of her own party of the merits of the agreement announced earlier on Thursday, her spokesman said.
The spokesman also said May had received strong support during a conference call with her cabinet members for the political declaration setting out the broad terms of Britain’s future relationship with the European Union.
