N Ireland party signs deals to support UK Conservative gov't

In accordance with our shared objectives for strengthening and enhancing the Union, security, prosperity and an exit from the European Union that benefits all parts of the United Kingdom, this letter sets out how the confidence and supply agreement reached between the Conservative Party and Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) will operate to deliver a stable government in the United Kingdom's national interest for the duration of this Parliament. The leader of a North. The leader of a Northern Ireland-based party is in Londo.

The Conservatives have reached a deal with the Irish Democratic Unionist party (DUP) to support Theresa May's government.

In return for the Northern Irish party's support the Conservatives have given the country an additional £1.5bn of funding.

But a spokesman for the first minister said the equivalent funding under the Barnett formula would result in an extra £1.67bn for Wales over the course of the current parliament.

The deal will face its first test in parliament with a confidence vote expected on Thursday.

In furtherance of these arrangements, the Government and the DUP will work together to ensure the necessary support can be established by both parties to fulfil these arrangements.

Some Conservatives have raised concerns about linking up with the DUP because of its opposition to same-sex marriage and abortion. May, who didn't give specifics about the deal, said that the two parties "share many values".

"The agreement we have come to is a very, very good one, and look forward to working with you".

And the SNP's leader in Westminster, Ian Blackford, said the deal showed Scotland is "seemingly to be offered little more than scraps from the table".

"It is outrageous that the Prime Minister believes she can secure her own political future by throwing money at Northern Ireland whilst completely ignoring the rest of the United Kingdom".

Northern Ireland has been without a devolved government since March when the main nationalist party, Sinn Fein, pulled out in protest over Foster's handling of a financial scandal.

"Where is the money for the Tory-DUP deal coming from?" the Labour leader asked. As a outcome, spending power of nearly £1.5 billion will be available to address the unique circumstances of Northern Ireland and the effect these have had on its economy and its people.

As part of the deal, money will be earmarked to address a bottleneck between three busy roads in Northern Ireland, and to open up "new opportunities for growth and connectivity" in digital infrastructure.

It is not known yet what exactly the terms of the agreement are but the BBC reports that there has been £1 billion extra funding for Northern Ireland over the next two years. There will be 100 million pounds over five years for poverty programs and 50 million ($64 million) for mental health programs.
