And don’t forget our agents?

And here’s another query from a Hampshire based Tory MP:

Dr Julian Lewis (New Forest East):To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, if he will review the adequacy of the arrangements for the permanent protection of former undercover agents in the republican movement.

A serious question given the gruesome end faced by the last publicly outed British agent within the Republican movement.
