Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has warned today's government to be careful with the current peace process.
Blair's warning for today's Govt; 'You've inherited a peace process that works, so be careful with it. It's fragile.'
Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has told MPs that the On The Runs scheme helped bring about the end of Irish terrorism.
Blair. If we had not done this deal we might be dealing with Irish terrorism now at the same time as international terror.
Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has admitted that the On The Runs (OTR) scheme could have been better run, but insists it was vital for the peace process to succeed.
He is giving evidence before a parliamentary investigation into the scheme:
Tony Blair tells NI Select Committee the On The Runs scheme could have been better run and he takes responsibility for it as PM of the day.
Blair; if the On The Runs had not been dealt with the NI political process could have collapsed. Sinn Fein might have walked away.
Tony Blair apologises for the errors in the OTR scheme ... But not the scheme itself.
Tony Blair is due to give evidence before a parliamentary investigation into the On The Runs (OTRs) scheme for fugitive IRA members later today.
The former prime minister's Labour administration sent about 200 letters to republicans assuring them they were not being pursued by the UK authorities following requests from Sinn Fein.
An investigation was launched by MPs when the prosecution of a man for the murder of four soldiers during an explosion in Hyde Park in 1982 was halted after he received one of the letters in error.
The OTR letters scheme began while Mr Blair was premier, and the chairman of the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee has said he is one of the most important witnesses to the inquiry.
A spokesman for the committee said Mr Blair had confirmed he would be attending a sitting today.
Mr Blair was a key architect of the Good Friday Agreement, which led to IRA arms decommissioning and the establishment of a devolved power-sharing administration at Stormont.

Energy companies and volunteers from the British Red Cross are providing vulnerable customers who have been without power for four days hot food and drinks.
Scottish and Southern Energy has been working with volunteers from the Red Cross to reach vulnerable customers, providing them with hot food and drinks.
Anne Eadie, co-ordinating the Red Cross emergency response, said:
Every one of our volunteers in Northern Scotland was ready to do whatever was needed to help make things easier for as many people as possible. Our biggest priority was to make sure that people identified as vulnerable - because of age, infirmity or some degree of disability - were able to withstand this crisis safely.
In some areas, water supplies were also knocked out because there was no power for the pumps which deliver it to more remote areas. Scottish Water provided supplies of bottled water, which our volunteers helped deliver.
Our response will wind down as more households are reconnected to the grid but until supplies are back to normal, our teams will continue to provide whatever help is needed.
Thousands of people are starting a fourth day without electricity as further high winds, heavy rain and snow are set to bring continued disruption to Britain's transport and power networks.
More than 100,000 homes lost power at the height of the problems and engineers worked through "treacherous" conditions to try to reconnect customers in the north of Scotland.
Some homes around Inverness, Dingwall, Wick and the Western Isles have been without power since Friday. All schools in the Western Isles are closed today to pupils, the council has said.
