Troubles inquests plan on hold after ministers fail to discuss funding
A radical plan to deal with inquests into controversial killings during the Troubles has been put on hold after the Stormont Executive failed to sign off on a request for funding.
Lord Chief Justice Sir Declan Morgan wanted funding for a five-year programme to hear the inquests, but a proposed bid for the money was not even discussed by executive ministers.
