Northern Ireland

Asked whether the Prime Minister was optimistic that a deal would be reached before Monday, the PMS said we did not get into making optimistic or pessimistic predications. It was clear there was a wide understanding that the deadline was Monday. There had been indications from the DUP that process had been made, and obviously the Chancellor had his meeting this morning on finance, but it was now for the parties to make their decisions.

Asked whether the Prime Minister thought progress had been made, the PMS said we had set out that there was now a full understanding on all sides that the deadline was Monday.
