(Reuters) - There is a growing consensus in the British cabinet to ‘reluctantly’ accept a customs union if Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal is defeated during a run-off final round of indicative voting, now expected on Thursday, The Sun newspaper reported late on Monday.

The option to keep Britain in a customs union with the EU, was defeated by three votes during a round of indicative voting on alternative Brexit options on Monday.
