DUP ‘confidence and supply deal’ could be delayed until next week


GE2017: The latest

The Conservative Party and DUP are to hold off with their announcement on the deal after Wednesday’s horrific blaze at the Grenfell tower block.

DUP sources said to the BBC assistant political editor, Norman Smith that they were finalising the “terms and conditions.”

After Theresa May’s catastrophic election results last week, she approached DUP leader Arlene Foster whose party had won 10 seats.

Yesterday Foster met with May in Downing Street to thrash out the agreement and talks “went well.”

The Queens speech which was due for Monday may well be delayed by another week, although this has not been confirmed.
