Factbox: Conservative MPs who have switched to back May's Brexit deal

LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May will put a stripped-down version of her twice-defeated Brexit divorce deal to a vote in parliament on Friday in an attempt to break the impasse over the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union.

May’s deal, an attempt to retain close trading and security ties with the EU while leaving the bloc’s formal political structures, was defeated by 230 votes in parliament on Jan. 15, and by 149 votes on March 12.

Some eurosceptic opponents of the deal have said they have changed their minds and will back it rather than risk a long delay to Brexit or even Britain staying in the bloc.

To get her deal approved, May needs to win over many of the 75 lawmakers in her Conservative Party who opposed it before.
