  • Extended description

    Brian Faulkner talks about how he would lessen tension in Northern Ireland if elected Prime Minister and his intention to carry on the reform measures commenced under Captain Terence O'Neill.

    Faulkner says that people must be convinced of the government's fairness in order to have rule of law in Northern Ireland.
