St Andrews Agreement

Volume 693: debated on Wednesday 27 June 2007

asked Her Majesty’s Government:

Whether they consider the 2006 St Andrews agreement to be an international agreement; and whether they will publish the agreement as supported by all parties in Northern Ireland. [HL4444]

The 2006 St Andrews agreement was published jointly at St Andrews on 13 October 2006 by the British and Irish Governments. The practical changes to the 1998 Belfast agreement institutions as envisaged by the 2006 St Andrews agreement have been formalised by the intergovernmental agreement between the Irish Government and the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (Cm 7078), which came into force on 9 May 2007 following the restoration of devolution.
