May to Set date for resignation soon: Tory MP

Vastavam web: Theresa May could be forced to set an exact date for her resignation as Conservative Party leader to make way for a new British Prime Minister in the coming days, a senior Tory MP has said.

Sir Graham Brady, who chairs the influential backbench 1922 Committee of the Conservative Party, told the BBC that he expects a “clear understanding” of May’s departure timetable once she has met the committee on Wednesday.

“It would be strange for that not to result in a clear understanding (of when she will leave) at the end of the meeting,” said Brady.

The 1922 Committee has asked for “clarity” about her plans for the future, and she “offered to come and meet with the executive”, he said.
