LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will make a statement in parliament at 1630 GMT on Monday about the nerve agent attack against a former Russian spy who passed secrets to British intelligence, Sky News said.

May’s office said they could not confirm the report. Earlier she held a meeting of her top ministers and security officials to discuss how to respond after Skripal and his daughter were found unconscious on a bench outside a shopping centre on March 4.
