Sinn Féin - On Your Side

British should stop engaging in spin and hype

18 October, 2004

Sinn Féin Chairperson Mitchel McLaughlin responding to remarks by British Secretary of State Paul Murphy in Wales this afternoon said:

"It would be more helpful if the British Secretary of State fulfilled the British Government's commitments to the Agreement rather than engaging in unhelpful hype and spin. We need to see substance. We need to see the British Government applying itself to fulfing its obligations under the Agreeement

"The British Secretary of State is more than a commentator. After all he suspended the political institutions, he penalised the Sinn Féin electorate and he refused to co-operate with the Barron Inquiry."ENDS
