The DUP has responded to pressure from Justice Minister David Ford for talks on resolving parading issues by saying it is “not fixated on logistics”.

Speaking at his party’s ruling council in Newcastle in recent days, Mr Ford said that 12 days had passed since First Minister Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness agreed to hold all-party talks on parades, flags and the past; and promised to deliver a paper on the issues within 48 hours.

“Yet so far no details whatsoever on the arrangements for these meetings have been given to the parties,” Mr Ford said.
