§ 74. Mr. EVERARD
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many conscientious objectors in the Civil Service will benefit by the recent concessions regarding pensions and increment made by the Treasury; and what is the approximate cost of this concession?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
The number of conscientious objectors in the Civil Service to whom the concessions apply is estimated at about 200. But I am obtaining actual figures from Departments concerned together with estimates of the cost involved for my reply to a similar question from the hon. Member for the Gillingham Division (Sir R. Gower) with a copy of which I will furnish the hon. Member in due course.
