Popular Activities For Peace In Northern Ireland

EDM number 29 in 1993-94, proposed by Harry Barnes on 18/11/1993.

That this House warmly welcomes the imaginative initiative launched in Northern Ireland by the editors of two major Belfast papers, the Newsletter and the Irish News, which serve both sides of the community to organise a phone-in referendum for peace on 17th-18th November; notes that this bold move was in support of the 'community day for unifying peace' which was jointly organised by the CBI and the Irish Confederation of Trade Unions on Thursday 18th November; and believes that these initiatives considerably help give voice to the cry from hundreds of thousands of people in Northern Ireland for peace and for both sets of paramilitary groups to stop the killing.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
