HC Deb 10 October 1916 vol 86 cc6-7
3. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a Baptist minister, the Rev. Herbert Dunnico, has been required to join for military service at Ilford, and that the officer Commanding at Ilford has told Mr. Dunnico that he was not excepted from the Act because there are notes against him and recent correspondence relating to him; and whether he will issue instructions to commanding officers that regular ministers are excepted from military service?


This gentleman was summoned for service under a misapprehension. As soon as his position had been made clear, the notice sent to him was cancelled.
