§ SIR JOHN PULESTON (Devonpor)
rose to put a Question arising out of an answer which had been given with reference to the reduction of men in the Dockyards. He wished to ask, was it not a fact that some 1,200 or 1,300 men a-year were retired by deaths or super annuation—
§ MR. SPEAKER
interposing, said: I hope the hon. Gentleman will not go back on Questions which have been answered long before. The practice is very inconvenient, and I have already expressed a hope that the House would not sanction it.
