Clinton trip deadline.
DAVID Trimble and Seamus Mallon called yesterday for President Clinton's visit to the North to become a "target date" for political breakthrough.
The White House announced on Monday that Mr Clinton would be making his third and final trip to the province from December 12 to 14.
In recent weeks the peace process has stalled over policing reforms and decommissioning.
Mr Mallon said: "I do not go along with the theory that he is here to cook the books.
"I believe that will have to be done beforehand so all the tension goes out of the air and when the President does come here, he comes to celebrate."
But pressure was mounting on nationalists last night to sign up to the province's new police service.
Chris Patten, who put forward the proposals for police reform last year, urged all sides to encourage their young people to join the province's new policing service.
