Foster tells Andrew Marr show she wants a solution that avoids a hard border

DUP Leader Arlene Foster

DUP Leader Arlene Foster has said she is waiting to hear the British government’s plans to deal with future customs arrangements with the European Union. 

Ms Foster said she would like to see more pragmatism from the EU over future arrangements after Brexit.

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr show, the DUP leader said she wanted the EU to work together with the British government to find a solution that would neither result in a return of a hard border with Ireland, or isolate Northern Ireland from the rest of the United Kingdom.

The British government has said it is taking its time to make sure it comes to the right decision on a future customs arrangement with the EU.
