The Windsor agreement, test delays for cancer patients, and wage increases for tech workers are some of the stories covered in Wednesday's front pages.

The Irish Times reports British prime minister Rishi Sunak faces pressure to deliver on a deal struck with the EU, even if it is rejected by the DUP and hardliner Brexiteers from his own Conservative Party.
