Description

Leaflet entitled 'The Future of Northern Ireland,' printed copy of a statement made by William Craig on behalf of the United Ulster Unionest Council representing Ulster Vanguard, The Loyalist Association of Workers. In October 1972 the Green Paper The Future of Northern Ireland flagged up the government’s objectives of a power-sharing Executive and an Irish Dimension. William Craig responded with a statement on behalf of the United Loyalist Council which highlighted the loyalists’ opposition to these plans and also appeared to take a stronger position on the possibility of independence for Northern Ireland.
