This Government is clear that it is only due to the unstinting efforts of our Police and Armed Forces that we have peace in Northern Ireland today. We have always acknowledged our ongoing duty of care to our former soldiers which includes providing legal support and representation.

Policing in Northern Ireland is a devolved matter. It is the role of the Police Federation to represent and promote the interests and welfare of the Police.
