LONDON (Reuters) - Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party will carefully study the assurances Prime Minister Theresa May has agreed with Brussels to her Brexit deal, its deputy leader Nigel Dodds said on Monday.

May clinched legally binding Brexit assurances from the bloc in a last-ditch attempt to win over rebellious MPs who have threatened to vote down her divorce deal again.

“All of this will need to be taken together and analysed very carefully because we are speaking at the moment without having had sight of the precise text,” Dodds, whose party voted against the deal in January, told parliament.
