  • Description

    Britain's Prime Minister, Mr. Edward Heath and his Irish counterpart, Mr. Jack Lynch, both in Munich to watch the Olympic Games, took the opportunity on Monday (4 September) to have talks on the Ulster problem.

    It was the first time the two Leaders had met since the singing of the common Market Treaty in Brussels last January. Their impromptu 'summit' conference took place in the British Consulate, and lasted on hour-and-a- half.

    According to observers, Mr. Heath took a tough line with the Irish Prime Minister, pointing out that the British government was not satisfied with what Ireland has done so far to contain the activities in Ulster of gunmen and terrorists based over the border in Eire.

    Mr. Heath said that there had been one raid across one border into Northern Ireland for each of the first 28 days of August, and emphasised that unless all sides were prepared to make a determined effort it would be impossible to achieve a successful administration in the north.
