Royal Ulster Constabulary

Question for Northern Ireland Office

UIN HL2743, tabled on 18 March 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to establish a specific body to deal with legacy issues in Northern Ireland; and whether any such body would be able to issue reports to families about allegations of non-criminal misconduct against former Members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary, whether living or deceased.

Answered on

The Government remain committed to introducing legislation that will reform the legacy system in line with our commitments set out in ‘New Decade, New Approach’. We intend to bring forward measures which focus on reconciliation and information recovery, which is most likely to help families find out what happened to their loved ones and help Northern Ireland look to the future.

Further detailed proposals will be provided in due course and we will be engaging with the NI parties and Irish Government in the coming weeks.
