§ Dr. Little
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in view of the value of Northern Ireland during the war as the gateway to the Atlantic, he will consider the establishment of a permanent naval base there.
§ Mr. W. J. Edwards
The hon. Member will appreciate that the establishment of a permanent naval base in Northern Ireland would be a large project which could not be considered apart from the decisions on major questions of post-war Naval policy which have yet to be taken.
