LONDON (Reuters) - The British government will accept four changes to its customs legislation proposed by eurosceptics within Prime Minister Theresa May’s party, the BBC reported, neutralising a planned rebellion by MPs who reject her Brexit plan.

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said the government had agreed to accept all the amendments, citing an unnamed government source. A spokesman for May did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
