§ Mr. Stratton Mills
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the United States Government about the issue of tickets by the Irish Republican Clubs of America, operating from headquarters in New York, to raise funds for the Irish Republican Army.
§ Mr. Anthony Royle
Her Majesty's Government deplore the raising of funds for the IRA whether in the United States or elsewhere. Her Majesty's Embassy in Washington has made this clear both publicly and to the appropriate authorities.
