§ 46. Mr. TREVELYAN
had given notice of the following question: To ask the Prime Minister if he can say what action has yet been taken under the Proclamation of Martial Law issued on the 12th August; whether the provisions of Section 13 apply to expressions of opinion on public or military policy; whether there is any appeal from courts martial to the Civil Courts; and whether information will be given to this House of any sentences passed upon British subjects under the Proclamation?
Owing to the complete assurance given by the Home Secretary yesterday that the provisions of Section 13 do not apply to expressions of opinion on public or military policy, I do not ask the first part of this question.
§ Mr. McKENNA
With regard to the second part of the question, there is no appeal from courts martial to Civil Courts. No sentences have yet been passed for offences under the Order in Council; when any are passed they will, no doubt, be reported in the Press.
