HC Deb 26 July 1898 vol 62 c1327
SIR C. DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he will inform the House of the extent to which it has been found possible to enlist three-year men under the present conditions of pay, etc.; and if he will make a statement on the subject on the War Office Vote?


From the 1st of April to the end of last week the number of three-year men enlisted has been 1,936, of whom 1,324 have been for the Infantry of the Line.
