The amnesty period extension order is one such mechanism. In the 19th century, Irish peasants' dependency on potatoes brought disaster when blight devastated an entire year's crop. But evidence of IRA criminal activity, along with the IRA's persistent refusal to give up its weapons, has continued to strain relations not only in Northern Ireland and Britain, but also in the Republic of Ireland.

We have yet to secure what we all wish to see: the start to actual decommissioning; and the removal of the bomb and the bullet from Northern Ireland politics for good. The final report published on Monday by the Irish and British governments reflects on the body's work since it was established in to facilitate the destruction of weapons and explosives belonging to paramilitary organisations on ceasefire. In Julythe IRA released a statement saying that members had been "instructed to assist the development of purely political and democratic programs through exclusively political means" and that "all IRA units have been ordered to dump arms" and "to complete the process to verifiably put its arms beyond use. Loyalist paramilitaries said they would consider decommissioning when they had evidence of IRA decommissioning.

In our judgment, it would be counter-productive not to have some flexibility over timing. He said: "As the IMC themselves note, while the commission has completed its remit, the security position In Northern Ireland is far from ideal. Since then, dissident renegades opposed to peace have targeted police, soldiers and prison officers. We believe that it is far better to extend the present arrangements for the full nine-month period permitted by the legislation, which is, of course, a shorter period than the House has endorsed on a number of previous occasions.
