HC Deb 19 October 1972 vol 843 cc116-7W
30. Reverend Ian Paisley

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on the promised referendum on the border issue in Northern Ireland and give the reasons why he has now postponed the same until after the announced date of the local elections there; and if he is aware of the resentment that this decision has caused.

Mr. Channon

I would refer my hon. Friend to what my right hon. Friend said in reply to his supplementary question on Tuesday.—[Vol. 843, c. 30–31.]
