The U.K. government extended the deadline for Northern Ireland's main political parties to agree on terms to restore the region's power-sharing legislature, as they worked to avoid the imposition of direct rule from London.

Commenting on why a fourth deadline to miss a deadline was broken, Murray accused Theresa May's United Kingdom government of undermining talks between Sinn Fein and the DUP.

"From our perspective, the position is that this doesn't mean the efforts to restore the executive are ending".

Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire will make a statement to the House of Commons on Monday outlining the Government's intentions going forward.

"Everyone should recognise that if a functioning Executive and Assembly are not in place and we go to direct rule, then they should not expect either to be back in place any time soon".

The assembly is scheduled to meet today at noon, where a first and deputy first minister would be elected were agreement reached.

The talks are mainly stuck on a disagreement between the pro-British Democratic Unionists Party (DUP) and its closest rival, Irish nationalists Sinn Fein, over Sinn Fein's demand to give the Irish language legal status in the province.

She said it was inexcusable that a row over the "name" of an Irish Language Act was halting progress.

Sinn Fein's Conor Murphy said "limited progress" had been made to bridge the gaps. It's not what we wanted and it's not what the people of Northern Ireland wanted.

Ireland's foreign minister said negotiations would continue and that an agreement was still within reach.

Mr Hammond said: "I know this is a matter of great importance to members on both sides of the House and an issue which I know my colleagues on the Treasury bench have been looking for a solution to".

Britain's under-fire Prime Minister Theresa May and her minority government will be put to the test Thursday, when lawmakers vote on abortion rights for women in Northern Ireland.

The Assembly has been suspended several times since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, but the DUP and Sinn Fein have successfully governed in coalition for around ten years, until the recent Renewable Heat Incentive scandal, brought down DUP leader Arlene Foster's government.

'Until that becomes reality, we look forward to working closely with government to ensure women travelling from Northern Ireland receive the equitable NHS treatment they deserve'.

Speaking at Westminster yesterday, Mr Brokenshire told MPs: "Our focus is on seeing that an executive is restored and I have been clear on not wanting to pre-empt what may happen should that not be the case".
