HC Deb 27 July 1904 vol 138 c1332

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War how many recruits will be required to keep up the establishment of the general service and home service Armies respectively; and when it is proposed to commence recruiting under the new system.


If the hon. Member will kindly wait for the Return which I hope shortly to publish, he will find therein the figures he requires. I am not at present in a position to reply to the last part of the Question.
