Vol. 259 No. 11

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Northern Ireland Political Opposition.


asked the Taoiseach if he will indicate whether the Westminster Government have made any official representation to him regarding the Irish Government's intention to provide aid for the Northern Opposition

I presume that the Deputy is referring to the "Fund to Assist Those Deprived of Human and Civil Rights in Northern Ireland" recently instituted by the Assembly of the Northern Irish people. The aims of this fund are humanitarian and a contribution to it would not warrant representations from the British Government and none have been received.

I recommend that persons interested should make their contributions either to the fund I have mentioned or to the appropriate fund of the Irish Red Cross Society.

Question No. 2 postponed.
