HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 c2437
17. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Home Secretary whether the Prison Commissioners make it a rule not to employ men who were conscientious objectors in the late War?


The answer is in the affirmative, and the Prison Commissioners in this matter are following the general rule governing the Civil Service.

Commander BELLAIRS

Am I to understand that if an hon. Member knows of any conscientious objector who is employed, and the right hon. Gentleman's attention is drawn to him, he will at once replace him by an ex-service man?


I cannot promise to do that. I can only promise to investigate any specific case which is brought to my notice.
