HC Deb 09 July 2003 vol 408 c855W
Bob Spink

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list the organisations engaged in communications with the decommissioning body; and if he will make a statement. [122799]

The Independent International Commission on Decommissioning is in contact with a wide range of organisations. In 2002 the UVF, UDA and Provisional IRA broke off contact with the IICD. However, in 2003 the Provisional IRA resumed contact and the Loyalist Commission, along with the UDA representatives, met the IICD. The Prime Minister has stated clearly that an undertaking is needed that all arms will be put beyond use through the IICD.
