Justice Minister David Ford says he is not aware of any undertakings of immunity or amnesty having been made to paramilitaries, members of the security forces or intelligence agents.

SDLP MLA Patsy McGlone asked whether any past or present employees of the Northern Ireland Prison Service or the Probation Board of Northern Ireland were aware of such undertakings.

Mr Ford replied: “I am not aware of any such undertakings being made.”
