That this Synod affirm:
(a) That those who sincerely object on grounds of conscience to military service should be heard by a special
tribunal as is done in Britain;
(b) That the present practice of punishing refusal to register by preventing employment be stopped; and
(c) That the Federal Government be asked to allow for conscientious objectors an alternative form of national
service, e.g. In constructive work of a civilian nature in Australia, Papua/New Guinea or South east Asia.
(The Bishop of Gippsland, 29.9.66)
