David Cameron has said the Government has no plans to legislate for an amnesty for crimes commited during the troubles in Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland's Attorney General John Larkin earlier called for an end to prosecutions relating to killings that took place during the Troubles in the country.
Responding to a question by the DUP's Nigel Dodds, Mr Cameron said: "The Government has no plans to legislate for an amnesty for crimes that were commited during the troubles."
The Prime Minister added that the views of Northern Ireland Attorney General are "very much his own words" and do not reflect those of the Government.
