Unionists demand clarity on British government policy to power sharing in Northern Ireland.

Ulster Unionist James Molyneux will be asking British Secretary of State Roy Mason whether the Taoiseach Jack Lynch had received any assurances from the British government about power sharing in Northern Ireland.

At present James Molyneux sees no likelihood of progress being made towards a political settlement. He sees the restoration of local government as the most important issue for the people in Northern Ireland.

We will constantly press that they don't in any way sell out Northern Ireland.
