LONDON (Reuters) – Two more Conservative members of parliament have submitted letters calling for a no-confidence vote in British Prime Minister Theresa May, the BBC’s political editor said in a tweet without citing sources.
If 48 letters of no-confidence are submitted to the head of the 1922 committee, then it triggers a confidence vote in May.
“Two more letters in we hear – Theresa Villiers and Philip Hollobone,” Laura Kuenssberg said in a tweet.
