The Northern Irish party propping up Britain’s minority government does not want Britain to leave the European Union without a deal, Reuters quoted one of its senior lawmakers as saying on Thursday.
“We’re very clear that we want to leave the EU with a deal, that is our priority. We don’t want to get into a no-deal scenario,” Jeffrey Donaldson told RTE Radio.
The lawmaker said that while the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) wanted to leave with a deal, it would not join parliamentary efforts to prevent Brexit from happening and would not take no-deal “off the table.”
DUP leader Arlene Foster wrote in the Belfast Telegraph the referendum decision had to be implemented in order for government to move on to other problems.
