Northern Ireland

Asked if the Prime Minister was meeting with the Dr. Ian Paisley later today, the PMOS replied that the intense discussions between us and the Northern Ireland parties were still going on. The PMOS repeated that time was getting short, and asked that people were patient. He warned against speculating about particular aspects of taking things forward, without having a firm agreement, because as always with Northern Ireland talks, there were concerns on all sides, and any package that emerged had to address all those concerns.

Asked again if the Prime Minister was meeting Ian Paisley, the PMOS said that we had not commented on meetings so far, but emphasised that it was an important time.
