igel Dodds has confirmed that he will resign from his post as deputy head of the DUP after the next election.

The former North Belfast MP was elevated to the House of Lords after losing his seat in the 2019 election and will continue to hold that post.

“Since, by party rules, peers are not even part of the party’s electoral college for leadership positions, it would be incongruous and inappropriate to do otherwise.

“However, I will continue to use my position in Parliament to further the cause of the Union and to express the views of trade unionists on the future direction of the UK and on issues affecting Northern Ireland more generally. . “
