It is clear that the current system for addressing Northern Ireland’s past is not working for anybody. In 2018, the UK Government public consultation, ‘Addressing the Legacy of Northern Ireland’s Past’, sought views on the original Stormont House Agreement proposals, and received over 17,000 responses. Careful consideration of all views provided in this consultation have informed our revised proposals for addressing legacy issues.
