Brexit: No new vote on May's deal without DUP support - says UK's Chancellor - BBC
Monday, 18 March 2019 Theresa May's Brexit deal will not return to the Commons this week unless it has support from the DUP and Tory MPs, the chancellor says, according to the BBC.
· *The BBC **say** that the PM's plan is expected to be voted on for a third time in the coming days.*
· *But Philip Hammond told the BBC's Andrew Marr that it would only be put to MPs if "enough of our colleagues and the DUP are prepared to support it".*
· *He did not rule out a financial settlement for Northern Ireland if the DUP backed the deal.*
· *The party, which has 10 MPs in the Commons, negotiated £1bn in spending for Northern Ireland as part of a confidence and supply agreement with the Tories - giving the government a working majority.*
· *Mr Hammond said they did not have the numbers "yet" to secure Mrs May's deal, adding: "It is a work in progress".*
