§ 21. Sir John Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will report progress on the eradication of terrorism in the Province.
§ Mr. Hurd
There has been a steady decrease in the level of violence in Northern Ireland and a gradual return to normality over recent years. This is encouraging but gives no grounds for complacency. The Government will continue fully to support the security forces in their efforts to eradicate terrorism.
