RPT-DUP holds firm to removal of backstop ahead of key UK votes

The Irish backstop and withdrawal agreement as they stand are not acceptable, Democratic Unionist Party lawmaker Sammy Wilson said on Tuesday, before the UK parliament votes on amendments to Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal with Brussels.

"(The) backstop has to be removed with a legally binding commitment to no hard border," Wilson said on RTE radio. The DUP props up May's minority government. (Reporting by Graham Fahy; editing by John Stonestreet)
