HC Deb 18 November 1918 vol 110 cc3177-8
84. Mr. ALDEN

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the cessation of hostilities, he will con- sider the advisability of taking steps to prevent the arrest and re-sentencing of conscientious objectors; and whether he will order the discharge of those who are now in military guardrooms awaiting court-martial?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Macpherson)

I am afraid I cannot adopt my hon. Friend's suggestion.
