BELFAST (Reuters) - Britain will have to bring in legislation to set a budget for Northern Ireland if the province's political parties cannot reach an agreement to restore their power-sharing government by Monday, a British government spokesman said.

If a deal is struck over the weekend or on Monday, Britain's Northern Ireland minister James Brokenshire would then return to London to begin the processes required to form a new Northern Ireland Executive, the spokesman added.
