LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May has the full support of her top team of ministers in Brexit negotiations, Britain’s Brexit minister Dominic Raab said on Thursday.

May has signalled she would consider extending a so-called transition period “for a matter of months” after Britain leaves the European Union, a move her critics say is a betrayal of Brexit. [nL8N1WY1X5]

Asked by Sky News if this would win the support of Conservative lawmakers, Raab said: “The Prime Minister has the cabinet’s full support.”
