JAMES MOLYNEAUX, the leader of the Ulster Unionists, yesterday started a guessing game when he alerted people in Northern Ireland to the possibility that there could be 'significant developments over the weekend with regard to the terrorist situation'.

Later, a senior party member said the move was not earth-shattering but 'might get some of our grass-roots supporters upset'. In a short statement from his headquarters, Mr Molyneaux advised the people of Northern Ireland 'not to jump to conclusions'. He added that 'detailed information should be available by the beginning of the week'.

The Irish Prime Minister, Albert Reynolds, writing in the Belfast Telegraph yesterday, maintained there would be no change in the status of the Province without majority consent.
