LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May is considering giving lawmakers a vote on whether to hold a second Brexit referendum in a bid to break the deadlock in talks with the opposition Labour Party, the Telegraph reported.

The newspaper said May discussed the idea of offering to put her deal to a confirmatory public vote with some of her ministers on Monday. It also reported that May’s chief enforcer in parliament is confident the government has the numbers to defeat any attempt to hold a second referendum.
