Omagh Report

Asked if the Prime Minister had a response to the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee report regarding the 1998 Omagh bombing, the PMS said that Omagh was the most horrendous tragedy and our thoughts were with the families who suffer still. The Gibson review was shared with ISC Chairman Kim Howells, which was the long standing procedure with intelligence material. Whenever national security issues were involved there could only be a limited number of people with whom such sensitive material could be shared. As far as the report itself was concerned, we would look at the Committee report very closely and respond more fully in due course. Sir Peter Gibson examined the issues around the Omagh bombing last year. He concluded that everything the intelligence agencies were asked to do by the then RUC Special Branch was done and any available material was shared fully and promptly.
