(Reuters) - Shares in Natwest fell slightly in early London trading on Thursday, after Reuters reported that Britain was poised to scrap a milestone sale of the bank's shares to the general public as PM Minister Rishi Sunak called a surprise election.

By 0722 GMT, the stock was down 1.1% to its lowest in more than two weeks. The broader FTSE 100 was off 0.1%.
