John Major warns May that Tory/DUP deal could threaten Northern Ireland peace process – politics live

13 Jun

The discussions, which have so far lasted nearly two hours, have moved from Number 10 to Parliament to allow the prime minister to speak in the Commons.

May, who will address MPs after the Speaker’s election, left for the Commons without answering reporters questions about how negotiations were progressing.

Foster said on Twitter: “Discussions are going well with the government and we hope soon to be able to bring this work to a successful conclusion.”

And a Downing Street source said the talks had been “constructive”.

The prime minister may not be present as the talks continue because she is heading to Paris for a meeting with newly-elected President Emmanuel Macron.
