New Consensus And The Provisional Ira

EDM number 1432 in 1992-93, proposed by Harry Barnes on 18/02/1993.

That this House commends the cross-party and British-Irish peace group, New Consensus, for organising a peace lobby outside the Sinn Fein Ard fheis on Saturday 21st February, in Dundalk; welcomes its actions in seeking to persuade delegates to that conference to table a resolution in favour of the renunciation of physical force; recognises that the aims of Sinn Fein are legitimate only in so far as they are pursued by democratic means; further recognises that the quest for peace, reform and justice in Northern Ireland would be considerably strengthened if the provisional IRA called a permanent ceasefire and laid down its arms; and believes that, in these circumstances, the danger of increased loyalist paramilitarism could be significantly reduced and that Northern Ireland would be nearer the goal of demilitarisation and peace.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
