HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 c1111W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether there is still a certain number of clergy in the ranks, men who joined for fighting purposes as examples; and whether, now the actual fighting is over, steps can be taken for them to be demobilised, and allowed to get back to their spiritual duties?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. Member for Spelthorne on the 15th July, to which I would add that unless the demobilisation of the soldiers in question is provided for in the Memorandum recently published, I cannot take any steps to grant them priority of release.
