Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement
Maghaberry Prison: Discussion
Earlier this week or last week, a UUP motion sought to do a wee bit of skulduggery around the issue of segregation. It was amended and the substantive motion, which was amended by Sinn Féin, was passed by the Assembly. It spoke about Fresh Start and the panel's review findings. This in itself indicates at least a marginal shift, that people are prepared to look at this and not just take a traditional knee-jerk reaction to the issue.
