  • Description

    Senator Edward Kennedy has made another bitter attack on British policy on Northern Ireland. Addressing the first day of a congressional sub-committee investigation into the Ulster situation in Washington on Sunday (27 Feb), the Senator compared last month's Londonderry shootings to the My Lai massacre in Vietnam, and said the policy of internment had brought British justice "to its knees". In retaliation for this testimony and "interference" by Senator Kennedy, six British members of parliament have since called for a House of Commons study of race relations in the Senator's own territory....Massachusetts.

    SYNOPSIS: The senator then switched his attack to Britain's Prime Minister, Mr. Heath.
