LONDON (Reuters) - The pro-Brexit European Research Group of Conservative lawmakers plans to vote against all proposed changes to Prime Minister Theresa May’s next steps on Brexit on Monday, a Conservative lawmaker said.

The lawmaker said the group planned to vote against the so-called amendments, including one which seeks to wrest control of the Brexit process to try to find a majority for an alternative that would break the parliamentary deadlock.

As long as the government’s motion on its next steps is not amended, the ERG will vote for it, the lawmaker, speaking on condition of anonymity, added.
