HC Deb 24 February 1914 vol 58 cc1570-1
18. Mr. HUNT

asked what is the annual wastage, reckoned in percentages, of men enlisted in each year in the armies of Germany, France, and the United Kingdom, and assessed under the following heads: died, invalided, discharged for misconduct, discharged as unlikely to become efficient soldiers, struck off as deserters?

Colonel SEELY

All the information asked for is not available. It has been necessary to put the answer to the question into the form of a table and, as this cannot conveniently be read out, perhaps I may be permitted to circulate it with the Votes. [See Written Answers this date]
