The Issues

Loyal Orders - As a member of both the Orange Order and the Royal Black Preceptory, I proudly support the traditions and positive influence of the Loyal Orders. I support the right of freedom of assembly and the right to parade. I believe that those opposed to traditional marches are showing cultural and religious intolerance. I believe that the abolition of the Parades Commission would ease community tensions and is long overdue. I welcomed the derating of Orange and other community halls. I chaired the Assembly Committee that looked at Government legislation providing compensation for halls who have suffered criminal damage, and I am pleased that Government agreed with our recommendation to drop the so called sunset clause form the draft legislation.
