Motion to mark an historic day

Former Northern Ireland Secretaries Peter Hain, Shaun Woodward and Paul Murphy have signed a Commons motion celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement later this month.

It is not all back-slapping: the motion "regretfully notes the recent surges of terrorist activity" and praises the actions of the PSNI. Mark Durkan is the only one of our MPs to have signed the motion so far. The others will have to wait until the House returns from recess on April 15th.
