HC Deb 08 December 1920 vol 135 cc2071-2
3. Colonel YATE

asked the Secretary of State for India the number of volun- tary enrolments in India up to date under the Auxiliary Force Act, and how this number compares with the number that were enrolled under the Indian Defence Force Act; and what is the date fixed as the time limit for volunteering under the new Act?


I regret that I am not able to give the information, as I have not yet received the report from the Government of India. I anticipate that it will take a little time to collect the returns from the various parts of India.

Colonel YATE

Can the right hon. Gentleman tell me when I can put a question down and get an answer?


I will inquire from my office this afternoon and let the hon. and gallant Gentleman know.
