LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May indicated to some Brexit-supporting lawmakers on Sunday that she would consider resigning in exchange for parliament backing her Brexit deal, The Sun newspaper reported.

“The major admission came in a private conversation with senior Tory Eurosceptics at her Chequers country retreat on Sunday evening,” The Sun said.

“May also made it clear she would first need to know if the numbers were there for any resignation pact before she agrees to ponder it any further,” the newspaper said.
