Martin McGuinness claims he has been told the Ulster Unionist Party is in secret talks with Downing Street on a financial deal ahead of leaving Executive. Mr McGuinness said "I have heard on very good authority the Ulster Unionist Party are actually negotiating with the British Government a financial arrangement which would see them remove themselves from the Executive, that they don't want to lose the funds that ministerial responsibilities bring to their party but wish to be compensated which clearly suggests that they are contemplating pulling out of the Executive either before the Assembly or after.
