Parades Commission decision is a sensible one – Gerry Kelly

2 October, 2013 - by Gerry Kelly

Responding to the Parades Commission determination on Ardoyne Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly said:

“I welcome this decision by the Parades Commission and believe it is a sensible one. It was clearly an attempt to undermine the Parades Commission who had made their determination on the July 2013 parade.

“The dialogue that began before the 12th July to find a resolution to the situation should recommence without pre-conditions.

“Setting the precondition that a parade must take place before dialogue can commence is not the way to progress this situation.

“What needs to happen is direct dialogue between the local residents and the Orange Order.
“In the interim a genuine effort to lessen community tension would be for the Orange Order, unionist politicians and loyalist paramilitaries to move their protest camp away from the interface at Twaddell.” CRÍOCH/END
