asked the Minister of Labour whether he has yet appointed a chairman of the Appellate Tribunal for conscientious objectors in succession to the late Mr. H. A. L. Fisher?

The death of Mr. Fisher has necessitated reconstitution of the Appellate Tribunal. On the nomination of the Lord Chancellor, my right hon. Friend has appointed Lord Fleming, a Judge of the Scottish Court of Session, to be Chairman. He has appointed as members, Sir Cyril Norwood, President of St. John's College, Oxford, and Sir Arthur Pugh, who was a member of the Tribunal as originally constituted.
