SF TDs initiate Bill to Repeal IMC Act

As the Press Association report on the UTV site notes, the 5 Sinn Féin TDs are to put forward a Bill in the Dáil calling for the repeal of the Independent Monitoring Commission Act 2003, at the minute it’s just a note of initiation of the Bill in the Order paper[pdf file] – I’ll add the transcript when available – It’s not the first challenge by SF to the IMC, although it’s the only attempt, that I’m aware of, to repeal the Act itself. There’s still the legal action lodged by the SF MP Conor Murphy at the High Court in London back on 1st December.
