HL Deb 17 March 2005 vol 670 c141WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they consider that Martin McGuinness and Gerry Adams are members of the Irish Republican Army Council. [HL1471]

Baroness Amos

The Government have always stated that it believes Sinn Fein and the IRA are inextricably linked. It has been the longstanding policy of the Government not to comment on matters of intelligence or individual cases.
