Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 7 - Regulation of goods: option to choose between dual routes (19 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: If the right hon. Member agrees that the North South Ministerial Council would be a good forum for discussing some of these issues, maybe he would allow it to meet.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 7 - Regulation of goods: option to choose between dual routes (19 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: The right hon. Member makes an interesting point, and I think he is right when he says that it is not just the practicalities of trade that are damaging confidence within the Unionist population, but does he believe that this will be enough to keep those people who are out on the streets happy? There will still be checks, and that constitutional issue that he has will not go away as a result...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 7 - Regulation of goods: option to choose between dual routes (19 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I am grateful to the hon. Member for giving way. Does he agree with me and with Mike Johnston, the chief executive of the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland, that the Bill risks making rural areas poorer by cutting off £600 million of trade?

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 4 - Movement of goods (including customs): excluded Protocol provision (13 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: Maybe I misheard the hon. Gentleman, but I think he referred to Congressman Richie Neal, who chairs the Ways and Means Committee in the United States—somebody who would be very important in the discussion around a trade agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States. I just want to clear up this point, because it is important to get it on the record: was the hon. Gentleman...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 1 - Overview of main provisions (13 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: Will the Minister give way?

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 1 - Overview of main provisions (13 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: The right hon. Member has stated that the Union is at risk because of the protocol. I know that he is no big supporter of the Good Friday agreement, but does he not accept that very clearly written into that agreement is the principle of consent? That basically means that, no matter how much I want it, we cannot change the constitutional position of Northern Ireland until the people of...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 1 - Overview of main provisions (13 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: On the point about consent—we did get slightly distracted—I totally and absolutely disagree with the right hon. Gentleman and Lord Trimble on how they say consent works. It is not an elastic principle; it is about one thing, the constitutional position of Northern Ireland. If it is elastic, however, does it apply to Brexit, since that was a constitutional rupture for the people of...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Schedule 4A - Exempt Offences ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: While a few MPs have had to sit through a few hours of debate about this issue, many victims have had to sit through decades of trying to comfort their loved ones after what happened to them. Only last week, we saw victims in Derry achieving a modicum of truth through the inquest process. That victim, Kathleen Thompson—a mother of six—was murdered in 1971. Those victims and families got...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 33 - No criminal investigations except through ICRIR reviews ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: The hon. Member is making an important speech. I wonder whether he has heard that the Council of Europe commissioner for human rights has today said that the Bill “raises serious questions about the extent to which the proposed mechanism…is compliant with ECHR standards on independent and effective investigations. The possibility to grant immunity…on a low evidentiary bar raises...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 33 - No criminal investigations except through ICRIR reviews ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I very much welcome what the hon. Gentleman is saying, particularly on judicial reviews and civil actions. I think he would agree that it is particularly egregious that the Government are seeking to close down the civil route for victims. The deadline for putting in new civil cases was the day the Bill was announced and published. For me, that was particularly difficult to take. Does he...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 33 - No criminal investigations except through ICRIR reviews ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: Let me ask the hon. Gentleman one simple question: there are countless examples, but has he ever heard of Stakeknife? He has quoted Kenova.

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 33 - No criminal investigations except through ICRIR reviews ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I am very grateful to the hon. Member; we are becoming good friends here now. I agree with him on the issue of homogeneous views. Of course, it is absolutely right that many families internally—within those families—have different views. I have not met too many who do not want to seek truth. I suppose the experience that we have, having dealt with so many of these cases—and the...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 33 - No criminal investigations except through ICRIR reviews ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: The hon. Gentleman has forwarded the argument about collusion a number of times, and I totally agree that we need the whole picture. If I accept that, will he accept that there are now very few people left who do not agree that there were collusive practices, that collusion was a thing, and that people who were being paid by the state murdered people in Northern Ireland? That is the whole...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 33 - No criminal investigations except through ICRIR reviews ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: Let me take this opportunity to make it very clear that every single murder and every single crime that occurred during the troubles was absolutely and totally wrong—I do not care who did it—and that every single bit of truth, accountability and justice possible should be got at. Every single paramilitary organisation should be coming forward with information, but we know that there is...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 33 - No criminal investigations except through ICRIR reviews ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I am grateful. The Minister mentions that the Irish Government made commitments. I absolutely agree that they need to deliver on those commitments, but they were made in the context of the Stormont House agreement. The British Government made commitments as well, but they are now moving miles and miles away from the Stormont House agreement, stopping any opportunity for people to get access...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 33 - No criminal investigations except through ICRIR reviews ( 4 Gor 2022)

Colum Eastwood: It is worth pointing out that we have two days for what is supposed to be the Committee stage, and this is fundamental legislation that needs to be scrutinised. Does the Minister recognise that one of the key victories of the civil rights movement was getting rid of the Special Powers Act? The Act was introduced in 1922, and the architects of apartheid in South Africa looked upon it jealously...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 1 - Meaning of “the Troubles” and other key expressions (29 Meh 2022)

Colum Eastwood: I am grateful to the hon. Member for giving way. I think he and I are two of the people who have some of these feisty exchanges that he talks about, and I will attempt not to be too feisty with him today. He has made it clear that he believes that there is no prospect of criminal convictions, and that those on this side of the Committee are appalled because people will get away with terrible...
