§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if his recent formal discussions with the Social Democratic and Labour Party produced any agreement.
§ Mr. Humphrey Atkins
I had discussions with a delegation from the SDLP on 30 January, the first of a series of meetings to which I have invited the leaders of the four main parties. The subject of the meeting was security and the delegation submitted a number of papers. I undertook to consider carefully the points made but discussion has been stood over to a further meeting.
