Ireland And The United States

EDM number 1619 in 1992-93, proposed by Peter Bottomley on 16/03/1993.

That this House warmly encourages every American with historic links to any part of Ireland to think of their next visit to Ireland; believes that when President Clinton nominates a distinguished American for a fact-finding trip, there should be a general welcome on the grounds that the more Americans come to Ireland, the better, and that the more people know about the realities of Ireland, north and south, the better; recognises that even if people cannot visit Ireland, there is much they can do to help employment there - from sleeping in Irish linen sheets to drinking Irish whiskey; and further recognises that through visits, through investment and through support for the All Ireland and these islands' peace movement, including organisations such as New Consensus, American citizens can contribute to an end to the deaths and to building the peace and co-operation that can make the border in Ireland irrelevant for all practical purposes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 12 MPs.
