LONDON – Theresa May has held meetings with leading Tory Remainers, amid speculation about further defections.

Justine Greening and Phillip Lee say May has ignored requests from pro-EU Tory MPs in favour of Brexiteers.

The pair had separate meetings with the PM in Downing Street.

In a separate development, an ex-Labour Independent Group MP said they would help to keep May in power if she agreed to another EU referendum with Remain on the ballot paper.

The PM was focused on her own party yesterday, as she met cabinet ministers David Gauke and Greg Clark.

The pair have warned of the dangers to business of leaving the EU without a formal deal, an option which Brexiteers in the European Research Group of Conservative MPs insist must be preserved as negotiating leverage in Brussels. (BBC)
