Mr. E. HARVEY
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has 683W been called to the court-martial held on Monday, 26th June, at Windygates, Fife, upon James Croall, a conscientious objector to military service, and the sentence of twelve months' detention passed by the Court; whether he is aware that this occurred more than a month after the promulgation of the Army Order X. of 25th May, whereby such men were to be sentenced to imprisonment and transferred to civil prisons; whether James Croall is now undergoing his sentence of detention in the military section of Perth Prison; and whether any steps are being taken to apply to his case the provisions of Army Order X. of 25th May, 1916?
§ Mr. FORSTER
Inquiry will be made into this case, and the Under-Secretary of State will take the liberty of sending the results of the inquiry to the hon. Member by letter.
