LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May told 150 business leaders that her government would be “unequivocally pro-business”, May’s office said on Wednesday, after criticism from some quarters that business had slipped as a priority in Brexit talks.

“She set out that the government would work to build a Britain that would be unequivocally pro-business,” May’s office said in a statement after addressing the chairs and chief executives, adding that she had also updated them on the progress of Brexit talks without providing details.
