LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday her government had always backed business and would continue to do so, working to get a Brexit deal that will offer as frictionless trade as possible.

A lack of clarity over May’s plans to leave the European Union has prompted several large companies with major operations in Britain to warn the government that a disorderly Brexit would hurt their businesses and could put thousands of jobs at risk.
