HC Deb 16 December 1929 vol 233 c948

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?


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.
