  • Description

    DR. BORG OLIVIER, THE MALTESE PRIME MINISTER WHO IS IN LISBON FOR TALKS ON THE FUTURE OF THE ISLAND, CALLED ON BRITISH PRIME MINISTER HAROLD WILSON AT NO. 10, DOWNING STREET TODAY (WEDNESDAY). THE TWO PRIME MINISTERS WERE JOINED IN THE DISCUSSIONS BY MR. PATRICK GORDON, BRITISH MINISTER WITHOUT PORTFOLIO.

    THE GOVERNMENT LEADERS DISCUSSED BRITAIN'S TERMS FOR A SETTLEMENT OF THE CRISIS OVER BRITISH DEFENCE CUTS ON THE ISLAND, WHICH WILL CAUSE CONSIDERABLE UNEMPLOYMENT.

    DR. OLIVIER, WHO FEARS THE ISLAND'S ECONOMY WILL BE CRIPPLED BY THE CUTS, HAS THREATENED TO EXPEL ALL BRITISH SERVICE PERSONNEL FROM MALTA IMMEDIATELY IF THE CURRENT TALKS FAIL.

    BRITAIN'S LATEST CONCESSION TO MALTA -- PUT FORWARD ON THE ISLAND LAST WEEK BY MR. GORDON WALKER -- WERE TO PHASE THE WITHDRAWAL OF TROOPS OVER FIVE YEARS INSTEAD OF FOUR.
