    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 6): REPORTER: "Mr. Jackson you've met some very angry members this morning?"



    JACKSON: "Yes I have."



    REPORTER: "What about last night's decision. Are you having some difficulty persuading them it was the right one?"



    JACKSON: "Let's first talk about the angry members. In their situation, I would feel exactly the same. They're not yet in full possession of the facts. If I'd been them today I'd have felt just as they feel. I think it is important that they should see the facts that we're giving them today in a handout from headquarters and discuss this and then make their decisions."
