Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

My Department has not received a request for  assistance  from Operation Kenova. We are prepared to be of assistance to Operation Kenova with its enquiries as far as possible, within the confines of the law. Any such request for assistance would be given full and careful consideration.

We are committed to working with the UK Government and the political parties in Northern Ireland to address the painful legacy of the Troubles. It is the Government’s firm position that legacy issues must be addressed through the implementation of the Stormont House Agreement framework, in order to support wider societal reconciliation, build greater community confidence in policing and meet the legitimate needs of victims and survivors in Northern Ireland and across the island of Ireland.
