LETTER: The Framework Document: presentation, history, hopes, fears and troubles

From Dr T. Chappell and others

Sir: We are delighted to see from the text of the framework document for Northern Ireland, as given in the Independent today, that John Major has come out in favour of proportional representation, and devolution to the regions within the context of supranational European integration. May we now hope to see Mr Major committing himself, in the next Conservative Party manifesto, to the extension of the application of these most laudable principles to the rest of the United Kingdom.

Yours faithfully,

TIM CHAPPELL
