HC Deb 20 February 1894 vol 21 c844
MR. HANBURY (Preston)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the War Office have any evidence showing whether the march of the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers through North Wales affected the recruiting in that (the 23rd) regimental district; and what was the number of recruits raised in this district in 1893 and in the year of the previous highest record?


The satisfactory results of this march will be fully shown in the Report of the Inspector General of Recruiting, which I shall very shortly present to the House.


Can the right hon. Gentleman answer the second paragraph of the question?


replied in the negative.
