Members of the Model Bill Team submitted written evidence to the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee on 'Addressing the Legacy of the Past'. The Committee launched an inquiry in 2020 to examine the UK Government’s proposals to address the legacy of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
On 18 March, the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Rt Hon Brandon Lewis MP, outlined the Government’s new approach to addressing the legacy of the past in a written statement to the House of Commons. The statement also set out some “significant” changes from the Stormont House Agreement. The inquiry examined whether the Government’s proposals deliver for victims, survivors and their families.
