May's opponents six letters short of threshold to trigger no confidence vote: Report

Opponents of British Prime Minister Theresa May are six letters short of the threshold to trigger a no-confidence vote, The Sun newspaper reported.

The Sun said that 42 lawmakers in May's Conservative Party had given firm assurances that they had submitted no-confidence letters, short of the 48 needed.

The Sun said 25 had publicly declared they have submitted letters while a further 17 have privately said they have written to Graham Brady, who collects a list of names anonymously in his role as chairman of the Tory 1922 committee.
