Ulster - Consultative Group on the Past - a question
Today I asked the 'Consultative Group on the Past' ( http://www.cgpni.org/ ) if the compensation scheme (Euro15,000 per victim), that is so controversial, applies to the families of all those innocent people in England murdered by the IRA in indiscriminate bombings.
The victims families in Aldershot and other British and Irish towns should all be included in any fair resolution. As too the families of all the soldiers murdered.
We will find out next week when the Eames-Bradley Report (named after the joint chairmen) is officially published outlining 31 recommendations to the Government, of which the compensation scheme is one.
