HC Deb 17 February 1920 vol 125 c680
5. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Secretary of State for War how many volunteer recruits have been obtained for His Majesty's Army since the armistice with Germany; how many of these have enlisted for more than 12 months' service; and how many soldiers who are not volunteers are still retained with the Colours?

The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Sir Archibald Williamson)

I would ask the hon. and gallant Member to await the statement which my right hon. Friend will make on the Army Estimates on Thursday next.

Colonel GREIG

Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether recruiting for the Territorial Army has commenced or not?


I am afraid I can only answer that by saying that a notice has appeared in the papers that the lists are open.
