Statements released from the Northern Ireland Office and the Department of Foreign Affairs, following the reaching of a new agreement on powersharing.
It follows ten weeks of discussions.
The key elements addressed include paramilitarism, welfare and finance. The document says the agreement will help to give the Executive a sustainable and stable budget, with about £500m of additional financial support from the UK government.
This money will be used to support programmes including the removal of peace walls.
The deal will also “pave the way of the devolution of corporation tax powers, which is expected to lead to a reduction to 12.5% by April 2018”.
