These included a new independent investigation unit and a truth recovery body, which were agreed by the Stormont parties and UK and Irish governments in the 2014 Stormont House Agreement.
But their implementation has been delayed due to the powersharing deadlock in Northern Ireland.
The Government has not indicated whether it will now move to establish the mechanisms, after an apparent reluctance to push ahead with legislation in the absence of a functioning devolved executive in Belfast.
It is understood officials will now consult with the Stormont parties to gauge their views on the way ahead in light of the consultation outcome.
The Northern Ireland Office acknowledged that some respondents did favour "drawing a line" under the past, arguing that security force members should be afforded protections, given concessions handed to paramilitaries during the peace process, such as the early release scheme and letters of comfort.
The summary document highlighted that some veterans groups also argued against an amnesty.
"They felt those they represented would have no difficulty in answering for their actions and would wish to see terrorist organisations and their members being held accountable.
"In addition, they felt that granting blanket immunity from prosecution could create a misleading impression of moral equivalence between security forces and terrorists."
As the consultation was self-selecting, it does not claim to reflect the views of a representative sample of the wider population, with opinions expressed very much dependent on who participated in the exercise.
A number of victims' groups proactively encouraged people to engage, providing templates to help people compile responses.
The 'Time for Truth' campaign, which advocates for victims of state violence, collated the largest number of responses - delivering 6,000 to the Northern Ireland Office before the consultation closed last October.
