Visit Of Irish Republic's President To Great Britain

EDM number 1276 in 2013-14, proposed by Gregory Campbell on 09/04/2014.

That this House notes the visit by the President of the Irish Republic Michael D. Higgins to Great Britain; acknowledges that relations between the UK and the Irish Republic have improved considerably in recent years; recognises that on such occasions pomp and ceremony will surround such events; and calls on the governments of both the Irish Republic and the UK to do more to assist innocent victims of terrorism, many of whom are still waiting for sincere and heartfelt apologies from those who carried out those acts of terror over three decades, such as the Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, who was present at a number of the historic events.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
