“The Commission has heard the decision of the judge late this evening and cannot agree with his view…”

We’ll have to wait to see the detail.  But, in the meantime, the News Letter has the he said/she said response to a High Court ruling overturning a Parades Commission determination in Castlederg.  From the News Letter report

A spokesman for the band, which was supported by TUV leader Jim Allister, said the case was won through a resident who protested that he was being denied the right to see the parade.

“The commission could not explain their position,” he said.

“They would not communicate with elected representatives in the area who asked for a review. This was a key reason given in court for overturning their determination.”

A commission spokeswoman said: “The Commission has heard the decision of the judge late this evening and cannot agree with his view of this very minor technical matter. The Commission will appeal, which unfortunately there was no time to do before the parade.”
