§ 39. Mr. Biffen
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement clarifying what contacts have been made with and commitments given to the Provisional Irish Republican Army and Provisional Sinn Fein at and since the Feakle talks.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
I have nothing to add to what I have already said to the House on 14th January, 5th February, 11th February, 12th March and 15th May. The Feakle talks were not the responsibility of Her Majesty's Government.
