HC Deb 16 March 1900 vol 80 cc1066-7
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, seeing that the First Lord of the Admiralty recently stated that fully 25 per cent. of the recruits for the Navy are rejected on account of bad teeth, will he state what percentage of the recruits for the Army were rejected for this cause during the year ending 31st December, 1899.


The percentage was 7.74 of the total number rejected—2.5 of the total number presenting themselves.
