Motion text

That this House notes the 50th anniversary of the bombing of the Abercorn Restaurant in Belfast; highlights the loss of innocent life with the death of Anne Owens and Janet Bereen with the bomb detonation a mere two minutes after the warning was phoned in and expresses our continued sympathy; further expresses support for the 130 victims who were maimed and live with the physical and emotional scars; and also remembers those first responders on the scene of that atrocity who dealt with images that can never be forgotten perpetrated by those who have never been charged or arrested and into which an historical investigation has not been carried out.
