STATEMENT ON PARADES LEGISLATION

A special meeting of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland was held in County Tyrone on July 6, 2010.

By a majority vote of those present, Grand Lodge decided not to accept the draft parades legislation in its present form as the way forward.

Grand Lodge officers will meet in the near future to discuss the issue and also the code of conduct which is out for consultation until September.
