Dissident Republican Paramilitaries

Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 28 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland pursuant to the answer of 19 April 2006, Official Report, column 723W, on dissident Republican paramilitaries, whether on 11 January he was in possession of any information to the effect that dissident Republican paramilitaries were engaged in a major recruitment drive in Northern Ireland. (69244)

In previous answers to this question (27 February, 16 March and 19 April 2006) the hon. Member was advised that the 8th IMC report published on 1 February 2006, indicated evidence that dissident Republican groups were attempting to recruit members. I can advise that the 10th IMC report published on 26 April 2006 repeats this earlier assessment that dissident Republican groups are attempting to recruit members.
