UK PM May is totally focused on the job in hand - spokesman

LONDON, March 27 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May is totally focused on the job at hand and will remain so, her spokesman said, as rumours swirled that she would set out a timetable for her departure to her Conservative lawmakers later on Wednesday.

The spokesman also said the government would only bring back her twice-defeated Brexit deal for a vote in parliament when there is a realistic prospect of success.

Some Conservatives have suggested they could back the deal if May agrees to step down before the next phase of negotiations with the EU. (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper and Andrew MacAskill, Writing by Kylie MacLellan; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
