185608 - Terrorism: Northern Ireland (Answered)

Dan Jarvis
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, with reference to the consultation on addressing the legacy of Northern Ireland’s past, which closed on 5 October 2018, when her Department plans to publish the results of that consultation.

Mr Shailesh Vara

The Government’s consultation ‘Addressing the Legacy of Northern Ireland’s Past’ has received over 17,000 responses. I am encouraged to see so much interest in the consultation and it is right that we now take the time to consider responses fully.

The Northern Ireland Office is carefully considering all the views received and will set out in due course how we intend to move forward. We will be taking all views into account to help us to build support and confidence from across the community for a better way to address the past for all those affected by the Troubles.
