HC Deb 24 May 1979 vol 967 cc177-8W
19. Mr McQuade

asked the secretary of State for Northern Ireland what action he proposes to take as the result of the invasion of the northern Belfast district at Crusaders football ground by supporters of the Provisional IRA.

Mr. Alison

I assume that the hon. Member refers to actions by some of those attending the football match between the Crusaders and Cliftonville teams on 14 May. I understand from the Chief Constable that the hooliganism which regrettably occurs at some football matches resulted in some minor disturbances and that the RUC dealt with the matter accordingly.

Forward to
