HC Deb 09 November 1978 vol 957 c334W
Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if, in the case of officers and men of the Royal Air Force who have had close relatives in Rhodesia killed and tortured by guerrillas currently sheltered and encouraged by President Kaunda, he will excuse from such duties those officers and men who have a conscientious objection to conveying weapons to Zambia.

Mr. Mulley

A member of the Armed Forces may apply for a discharge on grounds of conscience but may not be excused from specific duties or functions on these grounds.
