To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what steps he is taking to fund pensions for those victims of terrorism identified by the Northern Ireland Victims' Commissioner as in need of such pensions; and if he will make a statement.

The Stormont House Agreement of December 2014 set out a number of measures for the Northern Ireland Executive to take forward that would support victims and survivors, including a pension.

It is my hope that the Northern Ireland political parties can work together to deliver on the Stormont House Agreement that includes an acceptable way forward on the pension proposal. I will continue to engage with the political leaders in Northern Ireland to try to resolve this issue.
