DUP head: Talks with UK Conservatives going well

She added that she hoped for a settlement "sooner rather than later".

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said the government should put economic growth at the heart of its Brexit strategy.

Before her departure for France, Mrs May addressed MPs in the Commons, calling on Parliament to "come together in a spirit of national unity". The party is pushing hard for increased investment in the region; a demand that a former Conservative prime minister said could create a headache for May's government.

And a Downing Street source said the talks had been "constructive" so far.

Major's main warning, however, in an interview that was unforgiving in its assessment of May's planned deal with the DUP, was on implications for the Northern Ireland peace process.

Labour's unexpectedly strong second-place showing has thrown national politics into disarray.

There was a "danger", he said, that the United Kingdom government - required under the terms of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement to be an impartial broker in power-sharing arrangements between unionists and republicans in Northern Ireland - would not be seen by Sinn Féin and Northern Irish republican communities to be performing that role if they were "locked into a parliamentary deal, at Westminster", with the DUP.

During his time in office, Major helped to start the process that eventually led to the end of violence and a finely balanced local assembly in Belfast - where power is shared between the mainly Protestant unionist community, which celebrates its British heritage, and the mainly Catholic nationalist community, which identifies as Irish.

"But we've been branded in a particular way, which as I say is complete nonsense".

The DUP leader declined to give details of what she termed a "positive engagement with the Conservative Party", but said she would be travelling to London late on Monday for discussions with her team of 10 MPs before a meeting with Mrs May at Downing Street on Tuesday.

"I confirmed to President Macron that the timetable for the Brexit negotiation remains on course and will begin next week". She also reiterated her aim for a "deep and special partnership" with the European Union post Brexit.

Prime Minister Theresa May has made a joke at her own expense as Britain's House of Commons got underway - a reflection of her new humility following a disastrous snap election in which she lost her majority. He told Sky News that the reality of the election result meant that May and her government would need to reach beyond party lines.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn turned Mrs May's election slogans against her, claiming a link-up between the Tories and DUP would be a "coalition of chaos".

Brexit minister David Davis has insisted the approach to the European Union divorce had not changed, but at the meeting with MPs on Monday, May recognised that a broader consensus needed to be built for Brexit and made clear she would listen to all wings of the party on the issue.

Following two hours of talks at Number 10, Ms Foster said: "Discussions are going well with the Government and we hope soon to be able to bring this work to a successful conclusion".

Ms May surprised Westminster on Tuesday by appointing Steve Baker, a leading backbench advocate of a hard Brexit, as a minister in the department for exiting the EU.
