LONDON — Theresa May faces a vote of no confidence in her leadership from parliament, after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would call a vote urging her to stand down as Prime Minister.

A spokesperson for Corbyn said he will call a vote of no confidence in May on Monday if she refuses to set out a date for the parliamentary vote on her Brexit deal.
