DUP will consider backing amendment to UK PM Johnson's Brexit deal

Sat, 19th Oct 2019 07:14

LONDON, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Boris Johnson's Northern Irish
allies will consider backing an amendment which would delay any
immediate decision on the British prime minister's Brexit deal
when it comes before parliament on Saturday.

"Were going to look at that very closely," Nigel Dodds,
deputy leader of the Democratic Unionist Party, told BBC radio
when asked if they would support the amendment put forward by
expelled Conservative lawmaker, Oliver Letwin.

"We will certainly look at it very, very carefully."

His party had already said it would not vote in favour of
the deal because of its customs implications for Northern
Ireland.
