Action needed on pension for Troubles victims
WHEN the Haass talks ended, it was said that, while flags and parades did not respond to treatment, there was progress on the past. Someone should explain to victims and survivors exactly what constitutes 'progress'.
The idea of a pension for the severely injured was first proposed by the injured group of the Wave Trauma Centre and was taken up by the Victims' Commissioner.
It was good to see that it found its way into the draft agreement. But what's happening with it now?
