Tories 'will not order UUP' on NI devolution

The Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) has said it will reject the devolution of policing and justice on which Northern Ireland's power-sharing government is set to vote on today.

The UUP's rejection will deprive Sinn Fein and and the Democratic Unionist Party of the unanimous support they have sought.

Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary Owen Paterson comments on the UUP's position on devolution.
