    Terence O'Neill answers questions following his meeting with Harold Wilson.

    A number of journalists question Terence O'Neill regarding his meeting with Harold Wilson. O'Neill says he never gives promises that he cannot keep and does not discuss what took place at the meeting.

    Northern Ireland Prime Minister Terence O'Neill travelled to Downing Street, accompanied by Minister of Home Affairs William Craig and Minister of Commerce Brian Faulkner, to meet with British Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Home Secretary James Callaghan for talks about the situation in Northern Ireland.

    Harold Wilson confirmed the constitutional position of Northern Ireland in relation to the Republic but was not as committed on the independence of Stormont from Westminster.
