To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Ministerial Statement by Viscount Younger of Leckie on 18 March (HLWS163), who will decide whether there is “new compelling evidence and a realistic prospect of a prosecution” in order for an outstanding Troubles-related death to be investigated.

We intend that a new independent body will be responsible for looking at and providing information relating to unresolved Troubles-related deaths. Where there is compelling new evidence which carries a realistic prospect of a conviction, cases will proceed to a full police investigation.
