HC Deb 15 March 1948 vol 448 c1694
47. Mr. Bramall

asked the Attorney-General whether he proposes to take action to ensure that persons charged by the military authorities with offences which are also civil offences are brought to trial before an appropriate court when they are no longer subject to military law.

The Attorney-General

Yes, Sir. If and where offences are committed which are within the jurisdiction of civil courts in this country, although they may not be triable by military tribunals, appropriate action will be taken. The whole mattes is at present undergoing examination.

Mr. Bramall

Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that it will give considerable satisfaction to people to know that those against whom extremely serious offences are alleged will not go scot-free because they happen to be lucky enough to have got out of uniform before being caught?
