Culture is a devolved policy area in Northern Ireland. The Government provides the block grant each year, from which the Northern Ireland Executive allocates funding.

I visited the Twelfth of July parades last year in Newtownards. I have also met representatives of the loyal orders and wider loyalist community on a number of occasions, as have my Ministerial colleagues and officials.
