The Government has been clear that it will bring forward legislation to address the legacy of the Troubles in a way that focuses on reconciliation, delivers for victims, and ends the cycle of investigations which has failed victims and veterans alike.

While progress on this - including substantive engagement with key stakeholders like victims groups - has been affected by the challenging circumstances of the past few months, we remain committed to working with all parts of the community in Northern Ireland to help make progress on legacy issues as quickly as possible.
