HC Deb 12 April 1945 vol 409 c1953
6. Mr. Moelwyn Huģhes

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the case of R. D. Moore, who claimed to be a conscientious objector and was sentenced to two months' imprisonment at Brighton on 27th January, 1945, for refusing medical examination; and whether it was by the instructions of his Ministry that the prosecutor at the hearing resisted the defendant's request to the justices to impose a sentence which would have enabled the defendant to have his case considered by the appellate tribunal under Section 5 of the National Service (No. 2) Act, 1941.

Mr. Bevin
