HC Deb 06 December 1939 vol 355 cc672-3W
Commander Locker-Lampson

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will state the number and percentage of applicants who have been placed on the conscientious objectors' register by the Tribunals in the different counties of Wales and Monmouthshire?

Mr. E. Brown

The number of persons who have been provisionally registered as conscientious objectors in Wales is 1,052, or 3.7 per cent. of the total number of applicants who registered on 3rd June and 21st October. Three hundred and forty-eight cases have been dealt with by the North Wales and South Wales Local Tribunals and I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a statement analysing the decisions of these Tribunals by numbers and percentage. I regret that separate figures are not available for each county.
