TitleAn 11-paragraph document from Sinn Féin for the British government
DescriptionTypescript copies of an 11-paragraph document from Sinn Féin for the British government [in response to their 9- paragraph statement of March](3 pp); welcoming the contact and preliminary meeting but expressing qualms about Britain's perceived support for the unionist agenda; stressing their own commitment to democratic principles, an accommodation based on all-inclusive talks, considering fully the rights of the unionist population. (With captions by [Éamonn Downey] referring to Sinn Féin's Setting the record straight , and pointing to difficulty of dating the composition and delivery of the piece - it postdates a meeting on 26 April, and Brendan Duddy did not see it before 17 July 1993. Downey comments that if it was delivered in the meantime they must have used a different contact.) [cf.POL35/306 making clear it was being withheld.]
