Answered on

10 December 2014

Our co-operation with the Irish Government on security matters remains strong. Frances Fitzgerald, the Irish Justice and Equality Minister, has confirmed her commitment to continuing cross border co-operation to tackle the threat posed by terrorism. I also commend the outstanding work of the police on both sides of the border, whose recent successes in joint operations are testament to the strength of their working relationship.
