I welcome the statement from the Orange Order and the opportunities offered for on-going conversations. As we approach the summer, I am very conscious of the concerns of the congregation and local residents. I further welcome the cross party discussions at Stormont as they work towards resolving tensions in the community around parading and other issues. I also fully support the work of the Parades Commission and I am mindful that it is incumbent on all to follow their determinations.
