Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland Statement
The Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland is pleased to note that common sense has prevailed within West Dunbartonshire Council and their committee decision regarding Dumbarton District LOL 27 parade notification for Saturday 18th September.
Whether or not councillors agree or disagree with parades we live in a democratic society and there are certain legal protections to ensure people can exercise their right to protest, to parade and to meet.
The Loyal Orange Institution of Scotland has always stated that civil and religious liberties are for everyone on an equal basis.
As such our members look forward to a peaceful, enjoyable and successful parade in Dumbarton on Saturday 18th September.
