Proposals for a march by one of Glasgow's loyal orders past a Catholic church on Easter Sunday have been referred to a Glasgow City Council committee.

Last month, The Apprentice Boys of Derry (Bridgeton) notified Glasgow City Council of a procession on Sunday, April 21, 2019, which will pass both St Alphonsus' and St Mary's churches.

Glasgow City Council's website states two separate marches would take place, one beginning at 9.45am on Tullis Street and another at 12.15pm from Cathedral Square, when services will take place at both churches.

Despite no significant concerns being raised by police, officers from the council have asked organisers to attend a meeting of its Public Processions Committee.

A spokesman said: “Councils have limited powers in relation to parades and processions under current legislation.

“Officers have consulted with Police Scotland; which advised the council it currently has no significant concerns regarding public order, public safety, damage to property or disruption to the life of the community as a consequence of the notified procession on Easter Sunday.

“However, in recognition of the exceptional circumstances surrounding this particular event – including the significance of the date to all Christian faiths – the council is satisfied it requires further information and discussion. Organisers and police will be asked to attend a Public Processions Committee next week.”

One of the churches in question, St Alphonsus' is the site where Canon Tom White was attacked by a Orange march follower last July.
