British Prime Minister Theresa May has called on Conservative Party MPs to support her when the EU Withdrawal Bill is discussed in the House of Commons this week.

She said they should reject 14 of the 15 amendments suggested by Britain's second chamber, the House of Lords, when they are debated on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"We must think about the message Parliament will send to the European Union this week," she said, explaining that Tory rebels would tie her hands during Brexit negotiations if they opposed her.
