Taoiseach Welcomes British Governments Plans to Scrap Legacy Act

He hopes to reset British-Irish relations.

The Taoiseach has promised that Ireland will be a UK ally within the EU.

Simon Harris told Sky News that British proposals will get a "fair hearing" and that there's a willingness to listen.

He emphasized hopes to reset British-Irish relations, saying future generations would "never forgive us" if this opportunity is missed.

Mr. Harris welcomed the British government's plan to scrap the Legacy Act but didn't confirm if Ireland will drop its case against the UK, stating that things must proceed step by step. The Taoiseach has accepted an invitation to meet the new British Prime Minister in person in Downing Street on 17 July.
