LONDON (Reuters) - One more Conservative lawmaker has submitted a letter calling for a no-confidence vote in British Prime Minister Theresa May, the BBC’s political editor said.

If 48 letters of no-confidence are submitted to the head of the 1922 committee, then it triggers a confidence vote in May.

Laura Kuenssberg initially said that Philip Hollobone and Theresa Villiers had submitted letters, although she later tweeted to say that Villiers had not in fact submitted a letter.
