Louise Haigh – 2020 Comments on Funding for the Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation

The comments made by Louise Haigh, the Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, on 7 August 2020.

The Prime Minister has failed to keep the promise he made to victims of terror and to the peace foundation, and this failure risks removing vital support for victims.

It is frankly insulting to victims, that at the same time the service they rely on is placed into doubt, a life peerage carrying with it a £313 per day allowance is awarded to Claire Fox who steadfastly refuses to apologise for defending the Warrington Bombings.

The Prime Minister can, and must, block her peerage and he can and must secure the future of the foundation.
