HC Deb 07 July 1898 vol 61 c165
MR. PIRIE (Aberdeen, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he will inform the House of the number of recruits enlisted during the three months ending 30th June, specifying how many are specials for height or physique, and comparing these numbers with similar figures for the same three months of last year, and, if possible, giving the number of infantry recruits joining the territorial regiments of the districts to which they belong and the numbers not doing so; and if he will state the number of reservists in each of the three arms who have rejoined during this period of this year?


It is too soon after the close of the quarter for all, these figures to be available. If the Question is repeated a week hence, I hope to be able to answer it.
