Response on Quigley review of Parades Commission and public processions Act

Last Updated: Tuesday, 9 March 2021

The NIHRC has focused its consideration of the Quigley Review on those recommendations that have a direct bearing on human rights issues, notably the criteria on which determinations by the Parades Commission and related decisions by other agencies should be based and the procedures through which those determinations and decisions are made. It has not sought to comment in detail on other more practical aspects of the regulation of parades, such as the proposed arrangements for the provision and training of marshals, the obligation to carry out risk assessments or the regulation of bands or of paramilitary symbols.
