HC Deb 08 November 1945 vol 415 c1424
2. Major Conant

asked the Minister of Education what progress is being made in the scheme to facilitate the return of teachers, who are conscientious objectors, to the teaching profession.

Miss Wilkinson

A Bill has been introduced dealing with the release of conscientious objectors from work which they may have undertaken as a condition of their registration. Teachers are not specifically mentioned in the Bill, but they are covered by the general proposals.

Major Conant

Will the right hon. Lady say if these teachers havebeen released to take the place of clergymen who are not allowed to teach?

Miss Wilkinson

The question shows a complete misapprehension of the situation as regards clergymen.
