    Cabinet Discusses Demonstrations at Armagh
  • Extended description

    The Minister for Home Affairs, William Craig, has been accused by the Civil Rights Association of deliberately under-policing the parade.

    The Association said that if their stewards had not acted responsibly, the marchers could have broken through the police cordon and a severe clash could have occurred. It is now reported that the Civil Rights Association will approach British conservative MP's at Westminster to have a question raised in the House of Commons about Mr. William Craig's ability to act as Minister of Home Affairs.
