Villiers - useful & intensive week of talks

At the end of the 4th day of political talks at Stormont, the Secretary of State provides an update on discussions


Earlier this afternoon Ms Villiers said:

We have had a series of detailed and focused meetings around legacy issues and the proposals for new institutions to deal with the past that the Government published yesterday.

These discussions covered a number of important issues that will help to shape the legislation we present to Parliament next month. This has been a useful and intensive week of talks and we will resume on Monday to discuss the impact of continued paramilitary activity.
