§ Mr. JOWETT
asked the Home Secretary what number of the men imprisoned in local prisons as conscientious objectors under sentence by court-martial have been placed in fact under Rule 243a out of those who are qualified to come under Rule 243a?
§ Sir G. CAVE
Six hundred and sixty prisoners are qualified for the privilege given under Rule 243a. Of these 612 are receiving them—the remaining forty-eight have refused them wholly or in part.
