MOSCOW, 22 Aug — RIA Novosti. The democratic unionist party (DUP) Northern Ireland demanded two billion pounds in exchange for a coalition with the Conservative party, the newspaper writes Telegraph.
As stated by the source, the party has suspended talks with the conservatives to achieve a decision in their favor. “They stopped responding to calls (representatives of the Conservative party — ed). It lasted 36 hours,” the source said.
If the conservatives will go to this step, half the amount will be spent on financing health systems in the region, the second billion will go to support the infrastructure of Northern Ireland, said the source.
As the newspaper notes, if we allocate this amount between the people of Northern Ireland, will each receive 1.1 thousand pounds.

In the UK on 8 June General elections were held. The conservatives gained in the parliamentary elections only 318 seats — 12 less than they had in the previous Parliament, and eight less than needed for an absolute majority.
