DUP Westminster Leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson MP has called for progress on a pension for innocent victims.
Sir Jeffrey said,
"The UK Government set this pension for innocent victims. It rightly excludes bombers.
There is no need for the eligibility criteria to be changed. Perpetrators should be excluded. Indeed, it was the DUP who insisted on this.
HMG needs to get the pension activated and paying out to those who deserve it. It is immoral that SF continues to block this pension in Northern Ireland.
If necessary the pension should be progressed through London."
