Theresa May to confirm her resignation date

 May 7, 2019  

Theresa May is to meet the chairman of an influential committee of backbench Tory MPs, Sir Graham Brady, amid calls for her to set a firm resignation date BBC reports.

On the other hand The Sun writes  May will be told to finally name her departure date in a crunch meeting with Tory kingmaker Sir Graham Brady today – or face being ousted.

No 10 insists the meeting is routine but BBC political correspondent Iain Watson writes  Sir Graham is likely to press the prime minister for a timetable for her departure.

Meanwhile, cross-party talks to break the Brexit deadlock are due to resume.

In March, Mrs May pledged to stand down if and when Parliament ratified her Brexit withdrawal agreement with the EU – but she has not made it clear how long she intends to stay if no deal is reached.
