HC Deb 09 August 1901 vol 99 c278
MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he can state the total number of recruits raised for the Regular Army and for the Militia respectively since 1st January, 1901, specifying in each case the numbers obtained for the infantry arm and the number of specials.


The total recruits for the Regular Army up to the 27th July amounted to 25,700, of whom 12,390 were for infantry and 8,668 were specials. For the Militia there were 22,369 recruits, of whom 18,579 were for infantry.
