HC Deb 19 October 1915 vol 74 c1587

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs in which countries in Europe the Government compels its citizens to join the Army for foreign service, the classes of persons enrolled, and the conditions of enrolment; and whether he can state how the French Government procured soldiers for service in Tonkin and how the German Government procured soldiers for service in South Africa against the Herreros?


This question should, I think, more properly be addressed to the War Office, but the Foreign Office have certain information on the subject. I will, with my hon. Friend's permission, circulate it with the OFFICIAL REPORT, as it is rather long. [See Written Answers this date.]
