DUBLIN (Reuters) - Democratic Unionist Party leader Arlene Foster has no plans at this stage to travel to London where her Northern Irish party are continuing Brexit talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May, a DUP spokesman said on Monday.

May is trying to convince the pro-Brexit party’s 10 members of parliament, who prop up her minority government, to vote for the withdrawal deal she has agreed with the European Union.

DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds is leading the process in London, the spokesman told Reuters.
