We’re going to wrap up this live blog now, so here’s a summary of the day’s politics news:
For his part, Coveney said his day involved meeting business leaders, trade unions, farmers’ representatives, women’s groups and other people working in the voluntary and community sector.
I have to say that, in all the meetings we have had today, there is very strong support for what the prime minister is advocating for now and I wanted to try to reinforce many of those messages.
It’s not for me to say that. The DUP have a very important constituency, they are the largest party in Northern Ireland. I respect that. But I’ve got to listen to the other political parties too and business organisations and community organisations.
I think we have a job to do to all work together here to try to navigate a way through what is a very complex and difficult negotiation.
