From Mr Liam Dunne

Sir: Your article "Peace formula to exclude Sinn Fein" (21 February) states that John Hume's referendum proposal "would be the first cross- border plebiscite on the island since 1918". This is not so. The first post-1918 all-Ireland plebiscite was the European Parliament election of 1979.

Yours sincerely,

Liam Dunne
