NotesArtwork not dated, date estimated from news. News : The government was last night preparing a direct appeal to the people of Northern Ireland to give the London-Dublin proposals for the future of the Province a chance of progress. A special Cabinet meeting has been summoned by John Major today to lauch the most perilous stage so farin the search for lasting peace. Tomorrow Mr Major and John Bruton, the Irish Prime Minister, will go to Belfast to unveil the joint framework document designed to pave the way for full constitutional talks. Their symbolic choice of Belfast for the summit will mark the start of a huge effort to convince the Protestant population that the proposals are not a "sell out" in spite of the fierce hostility to the , displayed by their leading politicians . . . the Reverend Ian Paisely, leader of the Democratic Unionists, is expected to make plain in a meeting with Mr Major that his party will have nothing to do with a document which it beleives could open the way to a United Ireland.
