Theresa May to hold talks with ministers in bid to stave off exit
PM clinging on despite extreme pressure from her party to quit as soon as EU elections are over
Theresa May is trying to slow her departure from No 10 by meeting cabinet ministers to discuss rewriting her withdrawal bill, despite extreme pressure from her party to quit as soon as the European elections are over.
The prime minister will delay publication of the legislation until the first week of June while she listens to the concerns of the cabinet about it opening the door to a second referendum. There is heavy speculation May will announce a timetable for her departure on Friday, after European elections polling day.
