'No support' for Northern Ireland Troubles prosecutions call

24 November 2013 Last updated at 13:36 GMT

The former Northern Ireland Secretary and Torfaen MP Paul Murphy says the province's attorney general John Larkin was probably unwise to suggest that it was time to stop investigating alleged crimes committed during the troubles.

Mr Larkin made his suggestion before a BBC Panorama documentary revealed that members of a secret British Army unit, formed in response to the threat posed by the IRA, admitted killing unarmed civilians.

The Ministry of Defence has referred those disclosures to the Northern Ireland Police Service.

Labour MP Mr Murphy said he understood what Mr Larkin saying but it would not receive support in Northern Ireland.

Vaughan Roderick of BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement asked Mr Murphy if Mr Larkin had been wise to make the call.
