Description:
Live from House of Commons, a statement by Tony Blair (PM) on the way forward document published by the two governments after last weeks Stormont talks on the decommissioning impasse. He also outlines the advances made in progress politically in Northern Ireland and calls the Good Friday Agreement the only true way forward in Northern Ireland.

Then he outlines the terms of the proposals published last week on by passing the decommissioning issue, outlining the fail safe measures which bring down the Executive if actual decommissioning doesn?t take place, and highlights the role of DeChastelein commission in the process. He says the failsafe protects Unionists and claims the proposals will reveal within days if the paramilitaries are genuine about decommissioning. He makes an appeal for support from people to wait thirty days to find out. Then William Hague (Tory Leader) says they back the Good Friday Agreement. He then wants Blair to make it clear that Republicans and Loyalists responsible for the current impasse. He raises two concerns about proposals firstly no cast iron guarantee IRA will decommission, he wants a timetable inserted, then secondly on the fail safe measure, suspending the Executive means non-paramilitary linked to parties will suffer as well as Sinn Fein/PUP/UDP. He wants these parties only, suspended and a stop put on prison releases. Blair responds by highlighting the big picture view, and the lack of trust here, and that not only has decommissioning not happened but the Executive hasn't been set up. He is trying to build in certainty not trust to the proposals, but he can't force parties to go into a government with each other, on prison releases he says other laws apply. He again says if we don't put these proposals to the test we will never know if they work.
