Ms Foster told RTÉ News that she remains hopeful that a deal can be struck on Brexit before the United Kingdom leaves the European Union on 29 March.

"Simply put, as a result of a lot of hard work my only desire is to see this legislation sit on the shelf".

The proposed laws - made up of 15 parts - cover a range of areas and focus on protecting Irish citizens' rights, supporting businesses and jobs, healthcare, transport, education and energy.
