HC Deb 25 June 1900 vol 84 cc902-3

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he can say what proportion of the 41,700 recruits raised for the Army and of the 40,653 raised for Militia in 1899 were enlisted in Ireland; and whether he will also give the number for each of the two branches of the service recruited in each province and county of Ireland during 1899.


The hon. Member will find all the information available on page 29 of the Annual Report of the Inspector General of Recruiting for 1899, which was presented to Parliament on the 23rd March.


How many of the Irish Militia recruits were school boys under the age of seventeen?

[No answer was given.]
