§ Mr. Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for War whether all soldiers on remand awaiting trial by courts-martial can have the benefit of the ministrations of the chaplain; and what facilities are afforded to soldiers, who are not members of the Church of England or the Church of Scotland, to receive similar help?
§ Captain Margesson
The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir." If a commissioned chaplain of the soldier's own denomination is not available, a recognised officiating chaplain may be called in, but my hon. Friend will appreciate that commissioned chaplains are not confined to the two denominations mentioned in the Question.
