“I have spoken with Boris Johnson and congratulated him on becoming leader of the Conservative Party.

We discussed our shared objectives of strengthening every part of the Union, ensuring the 2016 referendum result is implemented and seeing devolution restored in Northern Ireland.

The Confidence & Supply Agreement between the Conservative Party and the Democratic Unionist Party remains.  That Agreement included a review between each Parliamentary session.  This will take place over the coming weeks and will explore the policy priorities of both parties for the next Parliamentary session.

I also look forward to welcoming Mr Johnson back to Northern Ireland shortly after he becomes Prime Minister.”
