O’Neill should be encouraged to press on with their programme of ending discrimination in housing allocations and jobs and generally improving the lot of the minority in Northern Ireland. 61 This was an incredible statement by Wilson. What ‘remarkable programme of easement’? He gave no evidence for such a programme for the simple reason there was none. 63 Once again the debate was only allowed because the United Kingdom Parliament had ultimate responsibility for the issue under discussion, namely the economy, particularly unemployment.
Professor John Griffith1 This chapter deals with Labour’s Northern Ireland policy in the runup to the general election in October 1964 and the development of that policy during the brief administration, which ended with the General Election of March 1966. The attitude of the Labour leader, Harold Wilson, is considered both in opposition and in government and the early attempts of backbench Labour MPs to raise Catholic grievances in the Commons are analysed. They were prevented from doing so by the convention that Northern Ireland issues – including discrimination – could not be raised at Westminster.
There was the understanding that things would be conducted in a certain way. That convention, he said, ‘gets stronger the more that it is applied and the more it is adhered to. The stronger it gets the more difficult it is to break’. 50 If the government did not bring in legislation the convention held, said Professor Griffith, adding: A convention is a hardened constitutional practice. . There are a lot of practices that start off as little babies. 51 Neither practices nor conventions had the force of law, he said.
