Northern Ireland Office: Public Consultation - HAVE YOUR SAY

The Northern Ireland Office released the legacy consultation “Addressing the Legacy of Northern Ireland’s Past” on 11 May 2018 and it will run until 17.00 on 10 September 2018.

A Consultation is the process whereby the public are given the opportunity to give their opinions on legislation the government is going to deliver.

This consultation is on proposed legacy mechanisms and includes draft legislation that will go through Westminster.

It will give the government and policy makers the chance to listen to the views of victims, survivors and wider society and be alerted to any issues or concerns.

The consultation documents can be accessed here on the Northern Ireland Office website.
