HL Deb 03 March 1999 vol 597 c185WA
Lord Eames

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether sufficient attention has been given to seeking a solution to the current impasse in the Drumcree situation, bearing in mind the forthcoming "marching season" in Northern Ireland. [HL1065]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Northern Ireland Office (Lord Dubs)

My right honourable friend the Prime Minister met the Orange Order in November and, more recently, a delegation from the Garvaghy Road Residents' Coalition. The Government are continuing their efforts to foster communication between both parties because they believe that agreement is still possible if goodwill exists.
