52. Mr. F. HALL
asked the Prime Minister if the inquiries now being made in certain towns of Ulster as to the accommodation available for troops have reference to the possible outbreak of revolt on the part of the loyalist Protestant inhabitants of that province; and if he is yet in a position to state the policy of the Government should the resistance of Ulster to separation from this country take a serious form?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I know nothing of any such inquiries. As regards the last part of the question I have nothing to add to the statements I have already made on his subject.
Mr. F. HALL
Will any declaration on the subject be made before the Royal Assent is given to the Home Rule Bill?
