Presentation and media skills were not part of the agreed person specification and skills requirements for applicants for the post of Chairman of the Parades Commission for Northern Ireland.

All newly appointed members of the Commission were provided with induction training organised by the Commission Secretariat. I understand that the induction training included an element of media training.
