To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, if he will publish the (a) attendees, (b) dates and (c) outcomes of meetings his Department has held with victims' groups in relation to the Government's Northern Ireland legacy proposals.
26 October 2020
Since March, a number of calls and virtual meetings have taken place with victims' groups, as well as the Victims' Commissioner and the Victims and Survivors Forum, at ministerial and official level. Despite the challenging circumstances presented by the ongoing Covid-19 situation, engagement continued throughout the summer months and continues to take place where possible. The UK Government remains committed to making progress on legacy issues, and recognises the importance of working with all parts of the community in Northern Ireland as part of this process.
The Government is committed to publishing details of ministers’ meetings with external organisations on a quarterly basis. Publications for the Northern Ireland Office can be found on Gov.uk.
