LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May told Conservative Party lawmakers on Wednesday that she would quit if her twice-defeated Brexit deal gets approved by parliament, a member of the parliament at the meeting said.

May “will go if deal gets through,” the lawmaker, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said. “Suggests she goes after a deal.”

Another Conservative lawmaker said that while she didn’t give a date, the impression was that she would go “reasonably soon”.
