WASHINGTON (AP) - President Clinton will not let intense opposition sway him from reversing the military's ban on homosexuals, but he plans to include in his policy 'a strict code of conduct' governing sexual behaviour of everyone in the armed forces.

The White House spokesman, George Stephanopoulos, said Mr Clinton planned to give details of his policy today. A meeting with members of the House and Senate armed services committees was being explored. The White House was receiving 'a fair amount' of phone calls opposing Mr Clinton's position, but he said the President was undaunted by the outcry.
