HC Deb 07 March 1986 vol 93 c309W
Mr. Ron Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received from the Orange Order requesting the use of Edinburgh's Holyrood park for a demonstration and rally on 28 June 1986; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ancram

In a letter dated 11 April 1985 the Loyal Orange Institution of Scotland sought permission to hold a demonstration in Holyrood park to commemorate the 296th anniversary of the battle of the Boyne. In line with the current policy for the use by organisation of the royal park for such purposes, the application was refused. I have received no further representations on the matter.
