Victims Memorial

Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 28 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what progress has been made in providing a permanent memorial in Northern Ireland to victims of terrorism. (80747)

The Government are aware of the sensitivities surrounding the issue of memorials in Northern Ireland and the lack of consensus on the issue. However, we do not feel that the time is yet right to consider establishing a permanent memorial. We appreciate that many would like to see some form of permanent memorial to those who have suffered as a result of the troubles.
