HL Deb 30 April 1998 vol 589 c33WA
Lord Tebbit

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will publish in the Official Report a catalogue of the terrorist weapons surrendered to the authorities in Northern Ireland up to the latest convenient date. [HL1576]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Northern Ireland Office (Lord Dubs)

No terrorist weapons have yet been decommissioned. In signing up to the Political Agreement, the Government, along with the Government of the Republic of Ireland and all the parties in talks, reaffirmed their commitment to the total disarmament of all paramilitary organisations and confirmed their intention to use any influence they may have to achieve the decommissioning of all paramilitary arms within two years of an endorsement of the agreement in the referendums.
