HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 c649
1. Mr. Glenvil Hall

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the case of Mr. Nemo Ermini, of Hemel Hempstead, who applied for registration as a conscientious objector on the grounds that he could not conscientiously take up arms on behalf of this country in view of the fact that his father, who had fought for the Allies in the war of 1914–18, had gone down on the "Arandora Star," and that he, himself, had been refused admission to the Home Guard because his father was an Italian; and whether, in the light of the circumstances disclosed, he will take steps to give this man the exemption he seeks?

The Minister of Labour (Mr. Ernest Bevin)

I have written to my hon. Friend about this case.
