Party makes legacy submission


More than 3,600 people were killed during ‘The Troubles’ and many thousands more were injured, many still suffer today

The Workers Party has submitted its views on addressing the legacy of Northern Ireland’s past.  Its submission opened with an acknowledgement of  “...the hurt, distress and on-going suffering of many victims’ families, friends and loved ones“.

“We are also acutely aware of the significant and on-going mental pressures and disadvantage endured by many Trouble’s survivors”, the Party said

“We therefore endorse approaches which place the needs of victims and survivors at the core of this process and are balanced, proportionate, transparent, fair and equitable.

It is against this backdrop that we welcome the Secretary of State’s ‘Addressing the Legacy of Northern Ireland’s Past’ consultation paper and the opportunity to comment on it.
