HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 cc1260-1W
Mr. McGovern

asked the Secretary of State for War whether lie can state the number of conscientious objectors awaiting trial by courts-martial and held in military custody; the period between the alleged offence and trial; and the number of previous offences in each case?

Captain Margesson

I am afraid that this information is not available and could not be obtained without a disproportionate amount of time and labour, including reference to every unit in the country.
