Theresa May has insisted a proposed deal with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionists (DUP) to prop up her minority Government will not be allowed to undermine the Good Friday Agreement.

Following talks in Downing Street with new Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, Mrs May said the terms of any arrangement between the Conservatives and the DUP would be made public once they were agreed.

“We continue our discussions with the DUP. We are talking about a confidence and supply agreement with them,” she said.

“On reaching such an agreement we will make sure that the details of that are made public so that people can see exactly what that is based on.

“As a UK Government we remain absolutely steadfast in our commitment to the Belfast Agreement, its successor agreements.”
