Sinn Fein to meet Blair in Downing Street

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP and Martin McGuinness MP will meet British Prime Minister Tony Blair tomorrow afternoon in Downing Street at 4pm.

Speaking this afternoon Mr. Adams said:

``The Sinn Fein focus will be upon British dirty tricks, policing, the revelations of recent days and the continuing refusal of Mr. Blair to face up to the British government's responsibility in relation to the Brian Nelson affair.

``We are also very conscious of the annoyance within local nationalist and republican communities over the slow pace of British demilitarisation.

``In fact there is palpable anger, particularly in rural areas, at the increased activity of British troops.''
