Wires carrying comments from UK PM Rishi Sunak's spox following the statement from Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) head Sir Jeffrey Donaldson earlier today saying his MPs will not vote for statutory instrument related to the 'Windsor framework'. Spox on restoring power-sharing in Northern Ireland: 'DUP have been clear there has been progress towards addressing their concerns, and want more conversations.'
- Spox: We continue to believe Windsor framework is the best deal for Northern Ireland.
- Spox: DUP are important partners, we stand ready to provide reassurance to them over the Windsor framework.
- Spox: No plans for substantial changes to Windsor framework.
The hardline Brexiteer European Research Group (ERG) of backbench Conservative MPs is set to have its 'star chamber' of legal experts outline its views on the Windsor framework on Tuesday 21 March at a press conference. This is ahead of the 22 March Commons vote on the 'Stormont brake'. See Week Ahead PDF for more info:
