§ Mr. Dubs
Will the Minister comment on relations with the Dublin Government, and will he confirm that the new Irish Prime Minister and the new Irish Government have shown a positive attitude to the Anglo-Irish Agreement and to the Intergovernmental Conference, which is meeting today? Will he comment also on whether this augurs well for more rapid developments in future?
§ Mr. Duffy
Is the Minister aware that today's Intergovernmental Conference will almost certainly signal Mr. Lenihan's intention to raise with the Foreign Secretary at their next meeting the worsening job discrimination involving Catholics in Northern Ireland? If the Foreign Secretary and the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland do not act urgently to check the growing imbalance in the public as well as the private sector, the present McBride principles campaign will continue to gain ground, not only in the United States, but in other countries, notably Scandinavia.
§ Mr. Peter Bruinvels
Has my hon. Friend been able to discuss with the Irish Foreign Minister the matter of 660 border incursions? As the Anglo-Irish Agreement is in practice, does he not agree that there should be give and take on both sides, rather than difficulties being caused every time a member of the armed forces from the north crosses into the south?
