LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday the “confidence and supply” voting agreement with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party remained in place.

May also told a parliamentary committee her government has discussed the concerns of the DUP over her Brexit deal with the European Union.

The DUP has said it will not back May in a parliament vote on the deal on Dec. 11.
