HC Deb 25 October 1972 vol 843 cc319-20W
Rev. Ian Paisley

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what representations he has received from parties in Northern Ireland in regard to the postponement of the promised referendum on the border; and what reply he has made.

Mr. David Howell

Representations have been received from several political parties in Northern Ireland about the holding of a poll on the border and in particular against its being held after the local elections. My right hon. Friend has undertaken to consider these representations.
