HC Deb 01 April 1925 vol 182 c1421

Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act, or any general, or garrison, or other order, including regulations and orders for the Army, or any similar order in the nature of a regulation published for the general information and guidance of the Army, no officer, warrant officer, noncommissioned officer, or soldier shall be compelled to attend any church parade or religious service."


The New Clause in the name of the hon. and gallant Member for Leith has caused me considerable trouble. I am aware that it has once been moved, but after searching for precedents on the matter and considering it in the light of what can be done in Committee of Supply, I have come to the conclusion that it must be brought forward there and not on this occasion.
