§ Rev. Ian Paisley
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he is aware that a Mrs. McCelland, a resident of Northern Ireland and a citizen of the United Kingdom, was attacked and killed by Irish Republican Army supporters in Christchurch, New Zealand; and if he will make representations to the New Zealand Government to ensure that citizens of the United Kingdom from Northern Ireland travelling in New Zealand have adequate protection.
§ Mr. Anthony Royle
This matter is in the hands of the New Zealand police with whom our High Commission is in touch. I much regret the death of Mrs. McCelland, who apparently emigrated to New Zealand from this country almost two years ago. I am confident that the New Zealand Government will continue to provide adequate protection for all who may need it, including immigrants or visitors from this country. I do not think that representations to the New Zealand Government are necessary.
