Asked whether there was any truth in reports that there would be no deal with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party over the border with EU member Ireland this week, the spokesman said: “As the PM said earlier this week, good progress has been made but there is work still to do.”

“We continue to work towards making further progress at the EU Council later this month.”
