 Around 40 lawmakers switch to support PM Mays Brexit deal, 40 undecided - Times reporter

LONDON (Reuters) - Around 40 lawmakers have switched to supporting British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit divorce deal but around 40 are still undecided, The Times' deputy political editor cited a source in the European Research Group (ERG) of lawmakers as saying.

"One ERG source says 40 have switched to back deal, 40 undecided but it's for each individual to declare before we're sure," Sam Coates said.

To get her deal approved, May needs 75 lawmakers to come over - dozens of rebels in her Conservative Party, some opposition Labour Party lawmakers and the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which props up her minority government.
