LONDON (Reuters) - British ministers have been discussing in recent weeks the idea of extending the country’s post-Brexit transition period, but the idea is not yet a formal proposal, Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokeswoman said on Thursday.

“This is an idea, it is not a formal proposal to change anything, it is something that we will talk to our European colleagues about,” the spokeswoman told reporters.

“This has been discussed between ministers in recent weeks.”
