Stewart Dickson MLA said: “This was an absolutely appalling atrocity and I want to let the families of those who were murdered know that my thoughts and prayers are with them.
“The findings of this report are extremely troubling, though we have to acknowledge the reforms to policing that have been made since that time.
“I also believe that it is absolutely crucial that we have a comprehensive process in place to address the legacy of the past. We need an overarching strategy to help meet the needs of victims and survivors and help build a shared future. Alliance has been leading the way in calling for the Secretary of State to convene party talks to help deliver agreement on how to address the past. This report should act as a wake up call to the Secretary of State to arrange talks as soon as possible.”
