Brokenshire to update MPs on deadlocked Stormont talks

Brokenshire to update MPs on deadlocked Stormont talks”

Plans have already been put in place at Westminster to legislate for a Northern Ireland budget if there is no agreement at Stormont.

Northern Ireland's political parties ended talks on Monday with no sign of a deal to restore devolved government, raising the prospect of London imposing a budget on the British province for the first time in a decade.

Sinn Fein regional assembly member Conor Murphy on Monday said a deal could be done but that the DUP had to make concessions.

This was always going to be a hard negotiation for her because it is the DUP that is under pressure to make concessions on a range of issues, including Irish language and culture and other rights-related questions.

"If the political institutions are to be sustainable then they must be restored on the basis of equality, rights and respect", he said in a statement ahead of the talks.

The DUP, an ally of Prime Minister Theresa May's government, warns it won't accept a "bad agreement cobbled together to suddenly suit the timetables of others".

James Brokenshire says he was considering what he called "certain requests" the parties had made to the UK Government.

The parties have failed to reach an agreement in spite of numerous rounds of discussions since March, after the Northern Ireland Executive collapsed amid a bitter split between the parties in January.
