- The Prime Minister will meet the leaders of Northern Ireland’s five main political parties and hear from them on the progress of talks to restore the Northern Ireland Executive.
- The Prime Minister also spoke with the Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar yesterday about how the UK Government will continue to work with the Irish Government to deliver a successful outcome to Executive talks.
- The visit also follows the announcement this week that Northern Ireland will receive a share of £300 million new funding, to help boost business and enhance opportunities for people in the region.
Why this matters:
Northern Ireland’s citizens need and deserve the Executive to get up and running again as soon as possible so that locally-accountable politicians can take decisions on the issues that really matter to local people.
