DescriptionTypescript memorandum by [Brendan Duddy] on the problems of policing in Northern Ireland, and offering proposals for change.

Submitting that 'in itself, prior to any British disengagement, the CAG is essential' (p.2); and 'The Irish Republican Army should assist the CAGs in all possible ways, with advice, financial support, intelligence etc. It should not attempt to manipulate the CAGs...'(p 3).
