LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will address lawmakers from her ruling Conservative Party on Monday, the deputy political editor of The Times newspaper tweeted.

May has urged them to back the bill that will end Britain’s membership of the European Union when it returns to the House of Commons on Tuesday.

On Thursday, her government found a compromise on the thorny issue of a backstop Brexit plan for the Irish border, which has caused divisions between ministers.
