Bishops warn Major over IRA
Friday 24 March 1995
Officials at the Northern Ireland Office will write to Sinn Fein leaders today to seek their clear commitment to discuss decommissioning of weapons before allowing Michael Ancram, the Northern Ireland minister, to take part in the exploratory talks.
Sinn Fein, in an exchange of letters about the agenda for the talks, insisted on discussing "demilitarisation" in Ulster. The Prime Minister's office said it was unacceptable because it would put the RUC and the Army on the same moral footing as the terrorists. Despite reports that this represented a block to progress, the talks will go ahead next week.
