NotesNews : Gerry Adams proclaimed yesterday that he will get his visit to the White House despite the strenuous efforts of the British government to prevent him from scoring another publicity coup. The leader of Sinn Fein made his prediction at a press conference...asked whether he would be going to the White House next week, Mr Adams declared, "Why else would I be going to Washington?" Mr Adams made a remarkable appearence alongside Michael Mates, the former Northern Ireland Minister, in a Newsnight interview broadcast from New York last night. It was the first time Mr Adams had met a leading member of the Tory party since the IRA ceasefire - Mr Mates having been sent to the US by the government to counteract Mr Adams impact on American public opinion. The Foreign Secretary, Douglas Hurd, at the UN, sought to blunt Mr Adams charm offensive. Mr Hurd told reporters, "The words and deeds of Sinn Fein have to add up - Mr Adams needs to be put in his proper dimentsion. He holds 10% of the vote, it's not a negligible figure if its a minority within a minority." [Mark Tran and Madeleine Bunting, 29th September 1994]
