To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Royall of Blaisdon on 16 June (WA 205–6) concerning the St Andrews agreement of 2006, whether the agreement has been fully implemented by both governments and all parties involved. [HL4390]

Significant progress has been made on the implementation of the St Andrews agreement. Discussions between the Northern Ireland parties on those elements of the agreement which relate to the devolution of policing and justice continue. It is for the parties to agree when these powers will devolve.
