Northern Ireland Statement: Car bombing

Last weekend, there was a car bombing in Londonderry/Derry. This should remind us all that the peace in Northern Ireland is fragile and it will take all communities to come together to ensure that people can live secure and peaceful lives.

The Assistant Chief Constable of the PSNI stated that this was an attack by the New IRA and I wanted assurances that they are a prescribed organisation. I was pleased that the Secretary of State could confirm this as prescribing a group means that more tools are available to the police and security services to track down those wishing to harm civilians.
