Ending All Forms of Paramilitarism - Amendment 1
Leave out all after ‘believes’ and insert: ‘that twenty-two years on from the ceasefires, and eighteen years since the Good Friday Agreement, all paramilitary organisations should have ceased to exist; condemns all paramilitary activities; notes the Fresh Start Panel Report on the Disbandment of Paramilitary Groups in Northern Ireland and the lacklustre response from the Executive; regrets that the Executive has allocated only £3.8 million of a potential budget line of £10 million in this financial year; further notes the statement of the Minister of Finance that British Government funding to address paramilitary activity will not be released until the Executive agrees a more detailed Action Plan on Tackling Paramilitary Activity, Criminality and Organised Crime; and calls on the First Minister and deputy First Minister and the Minister of Justice to rectify the inadequacies of the Action Plan by producing a substantive response to the report which contains clear targets, timescales and resources for implementation, identifies which Departments have responsibility for specific actions, and commits to developing a protocol on state and public sector engagement with individuals with perceived paramilitary connections.’
