§ Mr. DEVLIN
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, notwithstanding the fact that the Government of Ireland Act, 1920, reserves all military matters in the six counties of Northern Ireland to this House, a military adviser has been appointed by the Government of Northern Ireland; and whether permission will be given by the Treasury for the payment of this military adviser out of the moneys voted to the Government of Northern Ireland under the Act of 1920?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I understand that the reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. No money has been voted to the Government of Northern Ireland under the Act of 1920, and the second part does not therefore arise.
