The agreement reached was that Northern Ireland was part of the United Kingdom and would remain so until a majority of the population of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland wanted something else. Should this happen, the UK and Irish governments will be required to « have a binding commitment » to implement this decision. The agreement called for the creation of an independent commission to audit police rules in Northern Ireland, « including ways to promote broad community support » for these agreements. The UK government has also pledged to « carry out a comprehensive review » of the criminal justice system in Northern Ireland. The British Government is practically out of the equation and neither the British Parliament nor the people have, under this agreement, the legal right to hinder the achievement of Irish unity if it had the agreement of the people of the North and the South.
