Mr. van Straubenzee

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he plans any discussions with the political parties in Northern Ireland during the adjournment to carry forward a political settlement in Northern Ireland.

Mr. Mason

As I told the House on 30th June, I have periodic meetings with local political leaders to exchange views on security policy and on economic problems, as well as to discuss possible constitutional advances.
