Lawmakers cheer and bang on tables as UK PM May arrives at party meeting

LONDON, July 9 (Reuters) - Conservative lawmakers cheered, applauded and banged tables as British Prime Minister Theresa May arrived at a meeting of her party in a particularly upbeat welcome.

She is due to explain to the so-called 1922 Committee of Conservative lawmakers her position in talks to leave the European Union at the meeting after two leading eurosceptic ministers resigned in protest at her plans.
