8. Mr. Swayne

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement about the implementation of weapons decommissioning. [92978]

Mr. Ingram

The Government are determined to see the Agreement implemented in full. We, along with the Irish Government, have appointed Senator Mitchell to review the points of difficulty: an inclusive Executive exercising devolved powers and decommissioning of all paramilitary weapons by May 2000 in a manner determined by the Decommissioning Commission. Senator Mitchell aims to conclude his review speedily.
