British Prime Minister Theresa May is chairing a Cabinet meeting at her country retreat to discuss specific plans for the country to leave the European Union in a session meant to underscore Conservative party unity.

The meeting at Chequers comes amid reports of feuding among the three ministers tasked with making the break from the EU a reality.

The Wednesday session also comes as her office sidestepped questions on whether Parliament will be given a formal vote on triggering Article 50, the EU treaty clause that sets up Britain's departure from the 28-nation bloc.

Downing Street has said lawmakers will be given "a say," but adds there's "no legal obligation" to consult Parliament.

May's office also confirmed she will not hold a second EU referendum or an early general election.
