Pro-Brexit Conservatives say they will abstain on Brexit vote


LONDON (Reuters) – A group of Conservative pro-Brexit lawmakers have decided to abstain on a vote on Thursday, two Conservative lawmakers said, in a blow to the Prime Minister Theresa May who is seeking parliament’s renewed backing for her Brexit renegotiation.

“There has been a collective decision to abstain on the main motion if unamended,” two Conservative lawmakers in the pro-Brexit European Research Group said.
