This chapter provides background and context for Labour’s policies on Northern Ireland when it returned to government in March 1974. It examines the general attitude to Northern Ireland at Westminster, the bipartisan support for internal reform at Stormont, dissent within the Labour party on bipartisanship, the escalation of the Northern Ireland conflict, the imposition of direct rule and the making of the Sunningdale Agreement. It concludes with a number of blows to Sunningdale prior to the February 1974 general election.
