LONDON, June 12 Prime Minister Theresa May told
Conservative lawmakers on Monday she wanted to build a broader
consensus on Britain's plans for leaving the European Union.
Opposition lawmakers and some within her own party have said
May's failure to win a parliamentary majority at last week's
election was a rejection by voters of her plans to make a clean
break with the EU.
"The prime minister talked about wanting to build a
consensus, she recognised the different views in the party on
Brexit and she also recognized the need to not just reflect the
party but indeed the parliament and the country," one senior
pro-EU Conservative lawmaker and former minister said after a
meeting of the party's lawmakers in parliament.
"She acknowledged, and was asked and agreed, there was going
to be a broader consensus in the party, listening to all the
wings of the party on Brexit."
