HC Deb 05 December 2001 vol 376 c322W
24. Mr. Illsley

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what are the prospects for securing the full implementation of the Good Friday agreement; and if he will make a statement. [18117]

Dr. John Reid

The Government believe that prospects for the full implementation of the Belfast Agreement are very good following the significant progress made in recent weeks. This has included IRA decommissioning; the stabilisation of the political institutions; further normalisation; and the publication of the Criminal Justice Implementation Plan. We are committed to building on these developments to ensure steady and continued progress.
