§ 50. Captain Thurtle
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can now make a statement on the result of the recent court-martial on certain officers and non commissioned officers of the Pioneer Corps, on charges of ill-treatment of conscientious objectors?
§ The Financial Secretary to the War Office (Mr. Richard Law)
Any sentences which may have been awarded by the court-martial to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers have not yet been promulgated, and I am not therefore in a position to make a statement.
§ Captain Thurtle
Is it not a fact that a very large number of these officers and N.C.Os. are not guilty in regard to these charges?
