HC Deb 11 June 1997 vol 295 c497W
20. Mr. Hunter

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what action she(a) has taken and (b) proposes to take, to implement the recommendations of the North commission regarding marches. [1397]

Mr. Ingram

As set out in the Queen's speech, the Government is committed to bringing forward legislation on parades, which will fully reflect the analysis in the North Report. Our overriding principle is to uphold the rule of law, creating new structures to respect all the rights at issue. The legislation will draw upon the experience of this marching season, to achieve any enhancements which are possible to the proposed measures in the North Report.

Forward to
