Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis will be up in the House of Commons for the second reading of the Bill.
He is expected to outline the legislation adding that it is focused on “effective and timely information recovery”.
“The legacy of the Troubles is an issue that successive governments have attempted but ultimately failed to resolve — bluntly, because it concerns one of the most complex, sensitive and difficult periods in our history,” he will add.

Protocol bill to get second reading TODAY
Brandon Lewis will outline legislation around the Northern Ireland Protocol in the House of Commons later today.
The Northern Ireland Secretary is expected to say: “The legacy of the Troubles is an issue that successive governments have attempted but ultimately failed to resolve — bluntly, because it concerns one of the most complex, sensitive and difficult periods in our history.
“This legislation is focussed on effective and timely information recovery, providing answers and accountability to families and survivors and aiding reconciliation, to help society move forward.”
This is the second reading of the Bill after Foreign Secretary Liz Truss first outlined the plans to scrap part of the protocol last week.
