§ Rev. Martin Smyth
To ask the Prime Minister if he will make a statement on the necessity of a visible demonstration that the conflict is over in Northern Ireland.
§ The Prime Minister:
Securing an end to politically motivated violence and the stable operation of democratically based institutions of Government commanding cross-community support will provide the most visible demonstration that Northern Ireland has put the past behind it. 197W Decommissioning, verified by the Independent International Commission on Decommissioning, is a key part of achieving that goal.
