    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 11): MAUDLING: It is out intention to support the Northern Ireland Government in the programme which they have set at hand. This is an impressive programme. The past year has seen enormous changes and these proposals are being pressed forward on the essential basis of justice and equality. There is no problem that cannot be solved given goodwill and determination. I think the only danger is that people may lose hope. They must not lose hope and there is no reason whatsoever why they should lose hope. I leave Northern Ireland on this occasion, convinced that reason and humanity will ultimately triumph and Northern Ireland will then be set firmly on the road to freedom and prosperity."

    Background: The British Home Secretary, Reginald Maudling, arrived back in England on Wednesday (July 1) from his two-day visit to Northern Ireland. But before leaving for England he chatted to British troops and gave a press conference.

    A heavy security guard protected Mr. Maudling as he began his visit to the troops soon after breakfast. He visited both Roman Catholic and Protestant areas where the soldiers are keeping the peace and learned at first hand about their morale and experiences in the weekend violence.

    The tour past largely without incident though in one Protestant area Mr. Maudling had a mixed reception from some women and they began singing Protestant songs.

    Mr. Maudling's final call was to the Northern Ireland Parliament where he had final talks with the Ulster Prime Minister Mr. Chichester-Clark before leaving for London.

    Before leaving Belfast Mr. Maudling gave a news conference at which he said he's learned a lot during his brief visit. The change of Government at Westminster, he said, made no difference towards government policy in Northern Ireland.
