§ 47. Major NEWMAN
asked the Prime Minister whether it is intended that membership of the anti-Conscription and kindred fellowships shall constitute a claim for exemption from military service; and, if so, whether it will be necessary for the applicant to prove to the military service tribunal that he was duly admitted a fellow before the date of the introduction of the Military Service (No. 2) Bill?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; the second does not, therefore, arise.
§ Mr. OUTHWAITE
Is it not a fact that persons who have conscientious objections to undertaking military service will have to serve, while curates who desire to fight and urge others to fight will be exempted?
