St Andrews Agreement

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 29 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether any undertakings were made at the St Andrews conference in 2006 about a specific date for the devolution of policing to the Northern Ireland Assembly. [HL5694]

The St Andrews agreement states that it was the Government’s view that implementation of the agreement should be sufficient to build the community confidence necessary for the Assembly to request the devolution of criminal justice and policing by May 2008.
