Kingsmill Massacre Inquest ( 2 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: The issue for the families is that they are aware that the Garda Síochána had information pertinent to this atrocity—this massacre—of 10 innocents. The question that they are asking and that I am asking as a Member of Parliament, which I hope the Minister of State can respond to, is about evidence not available before that is available now.

Kingsmill Massacre Inquest ( 2 May 2024)

It is clear that 10 men were murdered because they were Protestants —that is what it was about. [Interruption.] A total of 136 rounds were fired in less than a minute. The men were shot at waist height and fell to the ground. Some fell on top of each...

Kingsmill Massacre Inquest ( 2 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. My cousin Kenneth Smyth was murdered by the IRA on 10 December 1971. I use that as a comparison because it is true, and the three people who killed him escaped across the border, in the same way as the IRA men—11 of them—who killed the 10 Protestants at Kingsmill. There is a question to be answered, and there is a debt of justice. I am a believer, as you...

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: The hon. Lady’s tremendous knowledge of this part of the world in particular, and the interest that she pursues so assiduously, cannot be ignored.

If the UK brings its global economic strengths to partnering with Serbia and other...

Business of the House ( 2 May 2024)
