DUP to Vote Against Government on NHS Pay

Arlene Foster, the leader of the DUP, has confirmed that her party intends to vote with the Labour Party on amendments relating to NHS pay and tuition fees. The vote, which is expected to take place next week, would be the first time that the DUP have failed to support the Government since the coalition which was formed following the 2017 General Election.

The votes will not be binding on the Government, meaning that the official agreement between the Conservative Party and the DUP won’t be broken.
