Senator BRAND asked the Minister representing the Minister for the Army, upon notice -

1.   Does the Government consider that the neutrality policy of Eire is a matter affecting the safety of Australia and the Empire generally?

2.   Will the Government appeal to the Eire Prime Minister (Mr. de Valera) to open the Irish coast bases for use by the Allied Naval Forces, in order that Britain may transfer certain of her naval strength to the southwest Pacific, and so regain sea supremacy in those waters?
