SIR NINIAN STEPHEN AND THE NORTHERN IRELAND NEGOTIATIONS

The Federal Opposition welcomes the appointment of Sir Ninian Stephen as an independent chairman of historic negotiations planned to address the future of Northern Ireland.

Sir Ninian brings to this difficult and sensitive task great personal integrity and intellectual strength.

On those criteria, Sir Ninian is superbly qualified and the Opposition wishes him well as he undertakes this important responsibility.
