The Northern Ireland Executive has confirmed it has no plans to acquire the rights to a book commemorating everyone who died during the Troubles.

Lost Lives: The Stories of the Men, Women and Children who Died as a Result of the Northern Ireland Troubles was first published in 1999 and then reprinted in 2008. Since then the book's original publisher has closed and copies have become increasingly rare, leading to editions appearing for sale online listed for hundreds of pounds.

This led to calls for the Executive to work with the Irish Government to purchase the rights to the book to preserve it for future generations.
