§ 49. Mr. CURRIE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the War Office regards it as incumbent upon the State to provide suitable accommodation for re- 426 ligious worship for the troops; whether any such accommodation is in course of being provided at the new barracks shortly to be occupied at Redford, near Edinburgh; if so, what accommodation; whether he has received communications from a joint committee of the churches in Scotland upon this matter; and, if so, whether he will take any action in connection with the matter?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)
I have received communications from a joint committee of Scottish churches on the subject referred to. The whole question is receiving my consideration, and I cannot make any statement with regard to it at present.
