LONDON (Reuters) - A spokesman for British Prime Minister Theresa May warned on Wednesday against the idea that discussions with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party to resolving a Brexit row could involve the Northern Irish budget.

“I’d warn you against speculating in that direction,” the spokesman told reporters when asked if talks involved financial issues and Northern Ireland’s budget. He said the government would not be providing further details of a telephone call between May and DUP leader Arlene Foster earlier in the day.
