Description

Northern Ireland Prime Minister Chichester-Clark arriving at No 10 Downing Street amid street protests.

Notes

James Dawson Chichester-Clark, Baron Moyola, was the penultimate Prime Minister of Northern Ireland and eighth leader of the Ulster Unionist Party between 1969 and March 1971. His premiership was punctuated by the civil unrest that erupted after August 1969. As the civil unrest grew, the British Government, particularly the Home Secretary, James Callaghan, became increasingly involved in Northern Ireland's affairs, forcing Chichester-Clark's hand on many issues. British troops were deployed on the streets of Northern Ireland four days before this meeting with Harold Wilson - then Prime Minister of the UK.
