HC Deb 22 July 1941 vol 373 c805W
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.
