§ 94. Mr. EVELYN CECIL
asked the Under-Secretary for War if he will state what systematic provision is being made for supplying the new Army with chaplains, especially as the local clergy and ministers in the neighbourhood of the existing camps are in many instances already fully occupied?
§ Mr. TENNANT
Provision is made at the large camps by appointing Army chaplains. Where the troops are split up into smaller units, it is nearly always found that a capable local clergyman is able and willing to supply the duty. In the rare cases where this is not possible, an Army chaplain is appointed.
