I need not add to what the Prime Minister has said as to the danger involved to our security, and, indeed, our existence, by the attitude of neutrality adopted by the Eire Government in the war. There are, however, no grounds for suggesting that the Eire Government committed un-neutral acts to the disadvantage of this country.
