The DUP MP said,

“The decision from the PPS not to proceed with prosecutions against soldiers who were on duty in Londonderry during the day known as 'Bloody Sunday' more than 52 years ago should come as no surprise. The passage of time makes any decision not to proceed in the absence of new compelling evidence fairly obvious. Given that the late Martin McGuinness was never questioned let alone a case considered by the PPS over his role on the day, how could there be any justification to proceed with these cases?

It also demonstrates that there is no need for the legacy bill the Government is enacting at the moment which takes effect in a few weeks.”
