HC Deb 24 July 1905 vol 150 c45
SIR CARNE RASCH (Essex, Chelmsford)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what are the numbers of Indian drafts required for 1906– 1907.


The Indian drafts for 1906– 7 can at present only be given approximately. The actual numbers must necessarily depend on the extensions of men enlisted for three years who are or will be serving in India. At present the total number is estimated at 14,000 for the infantry of the Line based on normal previous rate of extensions.
