Senator Daly asked for an official inquiry about the shooting from British Army Units in Belfast

The television programme “Panorama” on the BBC covered the admissions of some members of a British army unit that they were involved in shootings in Belfast. Was this raised at an official level and did we ask that the British Government seek convictions? I ask this because it was the first time there was an admission that a British Prime Minister was made aware of what was happening in the North. Downing Street correspondence from 1972 said “the Prime Minister thought it particularly important that it is envisaged, in paragraph seven of the note attached to your Secretary of State minutes, special care should be taken to operate within the law”. This was after the Prime Minister was made aware of the activities of the undercover unit that shot unarmed civilians in Belfast. Did we do anything in response to the BBC “Panorama” programme?
