Summary: 
Brief mention of renditions (says it might feature in discussions with Ahern). Notes that Government leaders have cited earlier U.S. assurances that no such practice involves Ireland. Also mentions that Dermot Ahern suggested reexamining the 1944 Chicago Convention in light of suspicions on rendition flights at one stage, but there have been no concrete moves by the Government to do this.
