UK PM May expected to make Brexit statement at 1700 GMT

LONDON, Nov 14 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to make a statement at around 1700 GMT on Wednesday outside her office after meeting senior ministers to discuss her Brexit deal, a Downing Street official said.

May must convince ministers to back the plan amid open hostility from some of her own members of parliament who say it threatens the United Kingdom’s unity.
