Parades Commission to Tackle 'Hangers-on'

The British government has announced legal changes to allow the North's Parade's Commission jurisdiction over "hangers-on" at Orange Order matches.

The new laws will allow the commission to make orders governing the activities of parade supporters.

This decision by the British government is a welcome one.It is time the loyalist thugs who are so prevalent in Orange Order marches were dealt with.I just wonder if these measures will end up affecting a sizeable number of Orange Order members...
