The secular press has suggested that the change of Monsignor Buckley from Wood Hall Ecumenical Centre to other work in the diocese of Leeds came about because of the Centre's recent connection with the Northern Ireland Peace Movement. This has been denied both by the Bishop and Monsignor Buckley.

Bishop Wheeler is one of the few bishops who has walked in a Northern Ireland Peace Rally. He has in his diocese a priest who works full time on Justice and Peace. He has now offered Monsignor Buckley the opportunity to work with the Peace Movement for a year. All this can hardly be construed as a rooted opposition to peace.

The person who has done most to dampen enthusiasm for the Peace Movement is Mrs Betty Williams. Her very unpeaceful remarks have caused many priests and laity to think again. Mgr K. O'Brien VG Huddersfield, Yorkshire.
