Snippet Contents:

Subsequently, they indicated that they wished to provide further material to my Department and the engagement continued. Further material was provided to the Department in January 2016. Engagement on these lines had been continuing up until the end of 2016, at which point the committee decided not to proceed with the process. I respect this decision.
I am mindful, as is the Government, of the understandable depth of feeling of those affected by this tragedy and of the need to avoid adding to their distress. It would be regrettable, against a background where there has previously been broad agreement in the House on motions relating to these events, if this consensus could not be maintained.
Returning to the motions passed in the House following the 2009 report, which accepted the view of Mr. Coffey that to establish a new tribunal to investigate the cause of the fire in the absence of any identified evidence would not be in the public interest, the key issue that now arises is whether any new evidence can be identified as to the cause of the fire. To address this, the Government proposes in its amendment that, in the first instance, an independent person be appointed to assess urgently the question of whether any new evidence can be identified. The Government will act on these findings. As stated in the programme for Government, "Full regard will be had to any new evidence which emerges which would be likely to definitely establish the cause of the fire at Stardust." If the independent assessment confirms the existence of new evidence, a commission of investigation will be established and the Government will proceed on the basis as outlined in the amendment.
I strongly believe this is the appropriate way forward. As I have said - and I think every Member of the House will agree with me - it is right that the tragedy is not forgotten and that we continue in this House to discuss and consider any measure that may address the terrible legacy of the Stardust fire.
