LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to address a meeting of his lawmakers from the Conservative Party on Wednesday evening, the chief political correspondent of the Daily Telegraph reported.

Johnson has been meeting the most pro-Brexit members of his party, and the small Northern Ireland party which supports him in government, as he tries to win support for a Brexit withdrawal deal being negotiated with the European Union.
