Today the Ulster Unionist Leader Robin Swann MLA led an Ulster Unionist Party delegation to meet the Panel of Experts on Redress for the victims of historical institutional abuse.
Robin Swann MLA said:
“The panel are seeking cross-party support for their proposed redress scheme for victims of historical institutional abuse. While the panel have clearly welcomed Hart`s findings with regard to the shocking extent of abuse, they are far from content with his recommendations for redress.
“The Ulster Unionist Party has been a consistent supporter of the victims of historical institutional abuse and we support their call for a cross-party approach to offering appropriate redress, including an immediate financial payment and a co-designed process for implementing other redress measures.”
