Explanatory Notes to the Model Bill on Dealing with the Past

These explanatory notes relate to the Model Implementation Bill for the Stormont House Agreement prepared by a drafting committee comprised of representatives of the Committee on the Administration of Justice, individual academics and visiting scholars from the Queen’s University of Belfast and the Ulster University (the Model Implementation Bill is published separately here under ‘Stormont House Agreement’ outputs) . These notes have been prepared in order to assist the reader of the Model Bill and to help inform debate on it (referred to as “the Act” in the text of the Model Bill).
