Motion text

That this House congratulates the group of people behind Initiative '92, the citizens' initiative in Northern Ireland which has launched an independent Commission of Enquiry into ways forward for the region; further welcomes the emphasis both Initiative '92 and its Commission, chaired by the Norwegian human rights lawyer, Professor Torkel Opsahl, are placing on the importance of democratic participation and dialogue in canvassing submissions from the widest possible range of people in Northern Ireland and beyond; looks forward to a full airing of the issues facing the region at the Commission's public hearings over the next year; and believes that its final report should be studied closely by all concerned to promote political progress in Northern Ireland.
