HC Deb 29 June 1915 vol 72 cc1617-8

asked how much has been spent on advertisements inviting recruits to join the Forces of the Crown; who is responsible for this Department; and what salary he receives?


As I stated on the 2nd March, in reply to the hon. Member for the Melton Division, it would not be possible without great labour and diversion of energy from other pressing work to take out a statement of the cost of all the advertisements issued. The responsibility for these advertisements rests with the Recruiting Department of the War Office.

Colonel YATE

Would it not be advisable now to put a stop to that expenditure?


It is a very difficult question to answer, because one does not know how much result is obtained from a definite amount of expenditure. But I would say to the hon. and gallant Gentleman that this is not a time to stop any agency by which we may be able to get recruits.
