To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they will instruct the Northern Ireland Parades Commission to provide copies on request of representations made to it, and the minutes of its discussions regarding determinations.
To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they consider that the Northern Ireland Parades Commission should be required to give detailed reasons for its decisions; and if not, why not.
Under the Public Processions (NI) Act 1998, determinations are operational matters for the Parades Commission acting independently of Government. The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland plays no role in that process.
The Noble Lord may wish to write to the Parades Commission directly on these matters.
