NORTHERN IRELAND – OPERATION BANNER VETERANS – 26 June 2017

Dr Julian Lewis: In the discussions with the Democratic Unionists, did my right hon. Friend make any progress on the question of protection for former service personnel who still face the possibility of prosecution many years after fatal incidents in the period of the troubles?

[The First Secretary of State and Minister for the Cabinet Office (Damian Green): I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for that question. The answer is yes. We seek to ensure proper fairness in the issue he raises and other legacy issues. I am sure that the agreement that comes out of our talks with the DUP will help advance a balanced and fair solution to those issues.]
