§ 2. Mr. NEWMAN
asked whether, in consequence of the possible employment of the military and naval forces of the Crown on active service in Ireland, a temporary re-estimate has been made necessary of the striking force available in the case of sudden European emergency; whether information on this point has been sought by a Power of the entente; and whether assurances have been given that the combined naval and military operations for the subjugation of Ulster have been abandoned?
§ Mr. NEWMAN
May I ask for your direction, Mr. Speaker, with regard to the putting of supplementary questions?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
There are 149 questions on the Paper, and I would ask the House to restrict itself to putting only those supplementary questions which are absolutely necessary, because it is hard on hon. 799 Members whose names come later on the Paper if they are prevented from asking their questions.
