The courage and professionalism of the police and other security forces cannot be underestimated and this Government remains committed to ending the cycle of reinvestigations into the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Funding of legal support for former members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary is devolved and a matter for the Northern Ireland Executive.
