Main points of DUP deal with the Conservatives


But Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams said that it might help if it gave the Democratic Ulster Unionists (DUP) confidence to do what his side deems necessary to restore power-sharing.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives struck a deal with an ultra-conservative party on Monday that will allow them to govern in exchange for an extra £1 billion in funds for Northern Ireland.

The UK Government will allocate £100m per year for two years to support the Northern Ireland Ireland Executive's delivery of its priority of health service transformation.

The United Kingdom has until spring 2019 to conclude the negotiations. "So the agreement we have come to is a very, very good one".

She added that the UK Government has committed an additional £1bn of funding for Norther Ireland over the next two years, and granted the country greater flexibility in terms of how £500m already committed can be spent.

The Northern Ireland party is pledging to vote with Conservatives on two topics that are at the forefront of British politics: national security - particularly in the wake of recent terrorist attacks - and the U.K.'s exit from the European Union.

The DUP supported Brexit but has emphasised the need to keep the border with the Irish republic open, and Foster said the deal would back a Brexit process "that supports all parts of the United Kingdom".

Under a "supply and confidence" arrangement meant to last for the full Parliament, the DUP guarantees that its 10 MPs will vote with the Government on the Queen's Speech, the Budget, and legislation relating to Brexit and national security.

Before the meeting, Foster said she was hoping to finalize a deal.

The north's power-sharing government has been dissolved for six months now.

"Today we have reached an agreement with the Conservative Party on support for government in Parliament", Democratic Unionist Party Leader Arlene Foster said from Downing Street in London.

The ruling Conservative party won 318 seats in the 650-member House of Lords in the June 8 election, falling short of the required majority mark of 326; the DUP won 10 seats. "I think that this agreement will bring the prospects of doing a deal at Stormont closer because this will have a positive impact in relation to Northern Ireland", she said.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Government has agreed to guarantee that cash support for Northern Irish farming will continue at the same level until the end of the Parliament in 2022, as the United Kingdom goes through Brexit.

The DUP has agreed a confidence and supply deal to support the Conservative minority government in Britain.

The agreement will "remain in place for the length of the Parliament and can be reviewed by the mutual consent of both parties", the document says.
