HC Deb 13 June 1991 vol 192 c656W
19. Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what action he is taking against the financiers of terrorism.

Dr. Mawhinney

We have sought to include in the Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Bill measures which should help to ensure that the financiers of terrorism will not profit from their illegal activities. I am pleased to say that the measures have received wide support in this House and in another place.

20. Mr. John D. Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many people have died as a result of terrorist incidents since Thursday 2 May; and how many of these deaths were caused by(a) republican terrorists, (b) loyalist terrorists and (c) the security forces.

Mr. Brooke

I refer the right hon. Gentleman to the answer that I gave earlier today to the right hon. Member for Lagan Valley (Mr. Molyneaux).

The Provisional IRA has claimed responsibility for seven of the murders. To date no organisation has claimed responsibility for the murder of one policeman and one soldier. Three men, apparently members of the Provisional IRA, were killed in an incident at Coagh involving members of the security forces.
