HC Deb 04 December 1906 vol 166 c745

On behalf of the hon. Member for North Hampshire, I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to put any check upon recruiting during the current financial year; and, if so, in which branch or branches of the Service will the recruiting be arrested.


Recruiting is only checked for any branch of the Service when the establishment of that branch is reached and is likely to be exceeded. This principle has been and is being applied.
