The Unionist Forum met for the first time on Thursday at Stormont to discuss discontent in the community over various issues.
Protests have been held for the past six weeks since the decision to limit the flying of the Union Flag at Belfast City Hall.
Some of those protests have turned into riots with many police officers injured and a number of arrests made since early December.
Those attending the meeting included:
DUP - Peter Robinson, Nigel Dodds, Arlene Foster, Sammy Wilson
UUP - Mike Nesbitt, Danny Kennedy, Tom Elliott, Sandra Overend
TUV - two party officers
Orange Order - Rev Mervyn Gibson and Drew Nelson
PUP - Dr John Kyle and Winston Irvine
UKIP - David McNarry and Henry Reilly
Independent unionist David McClarty plus researcher
Representing loyalists in east Belfast - Jim Wilson
UPRG - Jackie McDonald and Jimmy Birch
