HC Deb 04 May 1908 vol 187 c1648
MR. H. H. MARKS (Kent. Thanet)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can state how many members of the Volunteer Force were serving on the 31st March last, and how many of them have since enlisted in the Territorial Army.


The strength of the Volunteer Force, exclusive of permanent staff and Honourable Artillery Company, on the 1st April was as follows:—

Officers 8,645
Volunteers 215,572
Total 224,217

The Returns of the figures of those who have since enlisted in the Territorial Army are not yet sufficiently complete to enable me to publish them, but I hope they will be available very shortly.
