Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers outlining legislative plans to establish new mechanisms to deal with the legacy of the NI Troubles.

The Government has published plans to legislate for new mechanisms to deal with the legacy of the Troubles but warned they will not be activated until political resolution is found at Stormont.

The policy paper outlined by Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers sets out how the Government will establish investigative and truth recovery bodies agreed in last year's landmark Stormont House Agreement.

The paper also contains proposed legislation required for an oral archive to document the history of the conflict.
