DUP's Donaldson: Talks with UK PM May's conservatives "made progress" - BBC

Talks between Britain's Conservatives and the small Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) to prop up Prime Minister Theresa May's government made progress on Wednesday, DUP lawmaker Jeffrey Donaldson explained BBC TV on Wednesday.

Key quotes (via Reuters):

  • There will be further talks on Wednesday and I'm confident we could get an arrangement to support May early next week
  • Local media reports that his party was asking for 1 billion pounds ($1.27 billion) to be spent on health and a further billion to be allocated to infrastructure was "wild speculation and wide of the mark"
