LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May’s promise to leave office if her deal is passed by parliament has not convinced enough members of a hardline pro-Brexit Conservative group to back her agreement to leave the EU, a spokesman for the group said on Wednesday.

At a meeting of the so-called European Research Group (ERG) of pro-Brexit Conservative lawmakers, the spokesman said: “There is no way enough votes are coming out of that room to put the WA (Withdrawal Agreement) through.”
