§ 4. Lieut.-Commander Tufnell
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour whether, as Circular 123/11, which lays down that a person registered 973 as a conscientious objector must appeal to the appellate tribunal if he wishes to serve in the Forces creates a procedure which usually takes from four to six months, and, considering the numbers of such objectors who do now wish to serve, he can expedite the reconsideration of their cases?
§ Mr. Assheton
I understand that the appellate tribunal proposes to dispense with a formal hearing in these cases so that they may be disposed of as expeditiously as possible.
