Parading spokesmen

The Newsletter (no link) reports today that Sir Reg Empey has made his second round of appointments. Following from the appointment of Danny Kennedy as Deputy Leader he has created the portfolio of Parades, and has appointed a team of four to take it on. The four who are all members of the Orange Institution and other Loyal Orders are Michael Copeland MLA, Olive Whitten, Cllr Trevor Wilson and Young Unionist Alan Barr.

The report also reveals that the Party will no longer have a single spokesman on issues, rather a team containing an Assembly member, a woman and a younger party member.
