Palm Beach Post, Tuesday, Nov. 5, 19687 Students Demonstrate In Belfast, Demanding Irish Election Reform Anti-Tank Weapon Taken By Sheriff 1 The Palm ma limes s Cubans Offer To Buy OUTLAWS ENTERJWyiPLEJ LONDON (AP) Northern Ireland is British and intends to remain British, Prime Minister Terence O'Neill declared in London Monday night as divisions in his troubled country erupted in angry scenes in Britain's Parliament. 3 pft' L: ft-. WIS 5 i Iftn 1 Rowdy par JRa.,r;-T 'D 10 On Narcofo 't' After an afternoon on constitutional talks with Prime Minister Harold Wilson, O'Neill told the Commonwealth Parliamentary Assn., Northern Ireland wants no part of a union with the Irish Republic to the south. A communique issued after the meeting of the two prime ministers said Wilson had reaffirmed a pledge that no change would be made In Northern Ireland's constitutional status without that country's "free agreement." It added that they discussed recent riots in Londonderry and electoral reform, demands for which brought on the rioting, but announced no conclusions. While O'Neill spoke, Belfast police were battling student civil rights demonstrators try- Glades Bolita Figures Given Long Sentences ELECT rep x y pd tr S Pol. Adv TAX ASSESSOR ing to march on City Hall, shouting "One-man, one-vote! " Five were arrested and an undetermined number suffered minor injuries. The demonstration was timed to coincide with the Wilson-O'Neill meeting. Wilson has been under heavy pressure within his Labor party to order an investigation into charges of voting dlsenfranchisement and gerrymandering of electoral districts. Liberal party leader Jeremy Thorpe raised the Issue in the House of Commons. He demanded the formation of a constitutional commission representing the British Parliament and said: "I do not believe that even the most enthusiastic apologist for the Stormont (Northern Ireland parliament) regime would deny that there are tensions in Northern Ireland, and that they are very largely based on the division between men and women of different religions." Britain is responsible for Northern Ireland's defense and foreign policy but the Belfast government has widespread Internal powers. The British Parliament, however, has the right to Intervene on constitutional matters. Within minutes of the open-, ing of the parliamentary debate, two lawmakers repre-1 senting Northern Irish dis- trlcts were shouting angry threats and accusations, at' each other amid an uproar of catcalls. "If this house refuses to take action," shouted Republican Laborite Gerard Fitt of Belfast, "it can only expect a further occurrence of what happened in Londonderry." He called this the spontaneous action of "oppressed people demanding equal citi-' zenshlp with other parts of the United Kingdom." The coun- try, he added, had for 48 years been "subjected to the jack', boot" of the majority Ulster, Unionist party headed by O'N- eill "not only the minority of Roman Catholics but also the ordinary working class Protestant people." Ulster Unionist lawmaker Robin Chichester-Clark accused Fltt, who took part in the Londonderry civil rights demonstration, of uttering "the most remarkable piece of. political hypocrisy I have ever heard In this house."
