HC Deb 15 April 1918 vol 105 c24
60. Mr. KING

asked the Prime Minister whether it is the policy of the Government to so administer the Military Service Acts, including the Bill now being passed through Parliament, that no conscientious objections to military service, including those already recognised by tribunals, will be considered as exempting men called up from military service; and whether any special facilities will be given to ministers of religion to appeal against being called up for military service?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. With regard to the second part of the question, I must refer the hon. Member to the statements made during Friday's and Saturday's Debates by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary.
