The speculation emerged this morning in the Belfast Telegraph, who reported that the BBC was last night unable to confirm if its live coverage - which has been broadcast for decades - would happen again this year.
TUV leader Jim Allister told the newspaper that ditching live coverage of the Belfast Twelfth parade would be “in line with the anti-unionist tendency that exists within BBC NI”.
The broadcaster told the Belfast Telegraph that a decision has yet to be reached on this year’s coverage.
