The chairman of the Police Federation for Northern Ireland (PFNI) has said that while official policy states that there should be no amnesty, John Larkin's proposal is "worthy of some consideration".
We would have some concerns about what the Attorney General has said, but I do think that John Larkin has made a somewhat genuine attempt to move this process forward and it is worthy of some consideration.
But the Police Federation for Northern Ireland policy on these matters is very clear as it currently stands - that there should be no amnesty for either those previously engaged in terrorism or indeed members of the security forces.
