(Reuters) – Four of British Prime Minister Theresa May’s senior ministers have urged her to stop using the threat of a no-deal Brexit in divorce negotiations with the European Union, the Guardian newspaper reported on Monday.

The ministers – justice minister David Gauke, pensions minister Amber Rudd, business minister Greg Clark and Scotland minister David Mundell – made the demand in a meeting on Monday ahead of the May’s expected visit to Brussels for talks on Wednesday, the report said bit.ly/2SI73l9, citing sources.
