LOYALIST and Republican marches in Renfrewshire will not be banned, it has been confirmed. 

It comes after Glasgow City Council elected to block six public processions following advice from cops earlier this year.

The decision was made after two weekends of violence, with protests against marches being held across the city.

A Renfrewshire Council spokesperson, however, confirmed there are no plans to change policy.

They said: “Any notifications of processions received within Renfrewshire are considered by the council’s regulatory functions board and any representations made by Police Scotland or any other person are taken into consideration.”

As reported by The Gazette, Call It Out, a group that campaigns against anti-Catholic bigotry, protested during a march outside St Conval’s Church, in Linwood, in August. 

Leaders of Scottish Protestants Against Discrimination claim the group has been “propagating hatred”, which Call It Out denies.
