Stewart Dickson MLA said: “I strongly condemn the actions of those who tried to disrupt this meeting.
“People have a right to protest peacefully and respectfully, but not a right to be disruptive. Constructive engagement is the only way forward.
“Incidents of this nature send out a very negative message at a time when we are trying to build a better, shared future and attract businesses to invest in Northern Ireland.
“There is overwhelming support for the police and they do an excellent job often in very difficult circumstances. People want to move forward to a better and more stable future for Northern Ireland and scenes like these are very troubling.”
