Mr Dodds said, “This was a ludicrous case which has been rightly rejected at the first stage. The agreement between the DUP and the Conservative party is good for the United Kingdom as a whole and for Northern Ireland in particular. The agreement saw pensioners across the UK protected and will bring investment to Northern Ireland supporting health, education, infrastructure and to tackle deprivation.

The DUP is committed to delivering for all the people of Northern Ireland and this agreement will benefit everyone from right across the community.”
