asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether ministers of religion or missionaries of British nationality at present residing in territory belonging to an Allied nation will, in the event of an arrangement being made between the British Government and the Government of the Allied nation with whom he resides for imposing military services on each others' nationals of military age, be granted exemption if they fulfil the same conditions as apply to ministers of religion in this country?


Yes. Sir.
