§ 12. Mr. Thurtle
asked the Secretary of State for War why he is contemplating the re-introduction of compulsory church parades in the Army.
§ Mr. Thurtle
Is my hon. Friend aware that, while my Question appears to be unnecessary, I heard his answer with great satisfaction?
§ Mr. Emrys Hughes
Is the Minister not contemplating this action because he believes the practice of the Army is inconsistent with Christianity?
§ Mr. Stewart
No, Sir; I think it is more because we think the practice of compulsion is not consistent with Christianity.
