LONDON (AP) — The Latest on British politics (all times local):

11:45 a.m.

The leader of a Northern Ireland-based party says that she struck a deal with British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives to support her minority government.

Democratic Unionist Party leader Arlene Foster says that May agreed to provide 1.5 billion pounds ($1.9 billion) in funding to Northern Ireland without providing further information. Foster said the details of the deal with Conservatives will be published.

Foster said she was "delighted" an arrangement had been agreed. May, who also didn't give details of the agreement, says that the DUP shares a "desire to ensure strong government."

The agreement was reached before a crucial vote on the British government's legislative package later this week. With the support of the 10 DUP lawmakers, May would have a majority if all her lawmakers support her.
