Northern Ireland deadline looms as Westminster votes on Queen's Speech

It comes after May lost her parliamentary majority in the general election on June 8, which she had called to boost her support ahead of Brexit talks on Britain's divorce from the European Union.

DUP leaders had previously said that an agreement with the Conservatives will offer stable British government.

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.

The Conservatives' deal with the DUP will prove controversial because of the party's opposition to gay marriage and abortion and concern that the agreement could upset the fragile balance of the peace process in Northern Ireland. During the election campaign, MRs May repeated that there was "no magic money tree", a statement that has now been widely ridiculed following the deal.

In return, May agreed to at least £1 billion in extra funding over two years for Northern Ireland, agreeing to raise pensions annually by at least 2.5 percent and to keep universal winter fuel payments for the elderly.

In the written accord setting out the Conservative-DUP agreement, the parties promised to continue the deal for the full length of the parliamentary term, due to last until 2022.

During discussions, the Conservative Party also recognised the need for higher funding in Northern Ireland given the 'unique history and circumstances over recent decades'.

The Premier said she wanted a reciprocal agreement to guarantee the rights of one million British citizens living in other European Union countries.

McDonnell said "we need to see an end to austerity throughout the United Kingdom not just in Northern Ireland, and not just to prop up Theresa May and her failed government".

Northern Ireland's other political parties, principally Sinn Fein, have objected to a Conservative alliance with the DUP.

"In particular, the delivery of the York Street Interchange has always been a key infrastructure priority for local firms from across Northern Ireland, not just those based in Belfast". A deal with the DUP could ensure an extra 10 votes.
