Theresa May and her Tory Cabinet ministers are in No 10 Downing Street to discuss a draft Brexit deal agreed by UK and EU negotiators.
The British Prime Minister told MPs in the House of Commons that the Brexit agreement reached by negotiators took the UK “significantly closer to delivering on what the British people voted for in the referendum.”

“I know for the unionist community in Northern Ireland this is quite a difficult time. Many of them may be feeling vulnerable, many of them might be feeling isolated and many of them may be quite worried about what may be agreed in the coming days.
I want to say to them the GFA [Good Friday agreement] will be protected and that includes a recognition that we respect the territory of the United Kingdom and that we respect the principle of consent, that there can be no change to the constitutional status of Northern Ireland unless a majority of Northern Ireland say so and we are very happy to have that written into any agreement.”
