Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill — Clause 18 — Immunity from prosecution — 6 Sep 2023 at 13:45
“In order to build consensus on workable proposals that have widespread support we must listen to the concerns of victims, survivors and other interested parties.”
“Yes, there have been attempts to bring the concept of victimhood into the legislation that is proposed, and yes, the Government can claim that they have made efforts, but, in God’s name, I ask your Lordships to consider the overall impetus of what changes have been made to try to recognise the needs of victims and their families, and of those who, in years to come, when they read what has been said, attempted and failed to be produced, will find it incredulous to understand that the Mother of Parliaments has ignored their crying.”-[Official Report, House of Lords, 5 September 2023; Vol. 832, c. 343.]
