Flag problem on MLA's doorstep

Published 28/06/2012 | 08:00

I agree with Oliver McMullan (Write Back, June 26) that the provocative flying of partisan flags is wrong and intimidatory. However, as MLA for North Antrim, I would ask Mr McMullan what steps he has taken to encourage Protestants back to his home village of Cushendall, a village that has been largely cleansed of Protestants for this reason.
