HC Deb 05 March 1918 vol 103 cc1813-4

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what charge J. P. Hughes, a conscientious objector, at Dartmoor, was arrested; whether it followed the report of Major Terrell; and whether that report will be published?


The Committee on Employment of. Conscientious Objectors requested the Army Council to recall this man to his unit for refusing to work and for persuading other men to refuse to work. Before deciding to take this course the Committee had before them the report of an inquiry held at Prince town by the hon. and learned Member for Gloucester, the reports made to them by the manager and other officers of the work centre, and the man's own statement. The reply to the third part of the question is in the negative.
