HC Deb 13 July 1899 vol 74 c686
MR. HEDDERWICK (Wick Burghs)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he will state the number of recruits for the Army obtained this year in the Highlands of Scotland, and the average number recruited there during the preceding five years.


The recruits obtained in the Highlands of Scotland during the first six months of the present year have been 566. The average number recruited yearly during the last five years has been 1,035.
