The Government is committed to addressing the legacy of the past in Northern Ireland in a way that focuses on reconciliation, delivers for victims, and ends the cycle of reinvestigations into the Troubles in Northern Ireland that has failed victims and members of the security services alike. The Government will be engaging intensively with the Northern Ireland parties, Irish Government, and other key stakeholders over the coming weeks on the detail of the proposals that have been set out.
