Stalling is playing with fire - Mallon


THE SDLP deputy leader, Mr Seamus Mallon, has warned that suggestions that the North's political process be put, on hold until after the Westminster election involve "playing with fire".

Accusing the main unionist parties of trying to "play it out, until after a Westminster election", he said the framework, for talks must be preserved to allow an immediate resumption when the election is over.

Mr Mallon was speaking on RTE Radio's This Week programme yesterday.
