§ 24. Sir EDWARD COATES
asked whether, having regard to the difficulty now experienced by Territorial Force Associations in obtaining recruits in certain areas owing to the competition for recruits, he will arrange that each county association may be allowed to have a representative at each Regular recruiting agency in their county and that every such Regular recruiting agency may be instructed that an adequate proportion of recruits be sent to the Territorial Force in that county?
§ Mr. TENNANT
Every endeavour is being made to encourage co-operation and mutual assistance between Regular and Territorial Force recruiting agencies in each recruiting area and county. If difficulty is now experienced in any areas by Territorial Force Associations in obtaining recruits, it is felt equally by the Regular recruiting agencies in the same areas.
§ Sir RYLAND ADKINS
May I ask whether the instructions sent to Regular recruiting agencies for recruiting Territorials will also be sent to the county associations in order to prevent overlapping or friction?
