HC Deb 30 June 1924 vol 175 cc951-2W

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the action of the Lord Chancellor in threatening to remove Mr. Dent from the Commission of the Peace, he will consider the desirability of removing from the Commission of the Peace all conscientious objectors and others who from political reasons have refused to obey the law?


I have been asked to reply. The Lord Chancellor will consider every case which is brought to his notice in which a person who, while holding the office of Justice of the Peace, persistently refuses to obey the law, whether from political or other reasons, but it is not possible to say what action will be taken in any case or class of case.
