On the eve of the civil rights demonstration, Minister of Home Affairs William Craig speaks to reporters and outlines his fear of disorder across Ulster if there is trouble in Derry.

William Craig says that the police will take whatever action necessary to enforce the law and he hopes there will be calm at the march in Londonderry. He fears riot and disorder will escalate across the province but is not specific about who he fears will cause this violence but points to extremists from both sides of the religious divide.
