BELFAST you hate the British clap your These are the words of a children's street song in the Roman Catholic Falls Road quarter of this war-scarred city. It is a litany of hate sung by children who see British sol- diers much the same as French children or Dutch children once viewed the Nazi conquerors in Europe.

In his the minister made a strong plea for the ex- emption of the highly-prized salmon from the general rule being devised to government fishing and other marine mat- ters.
