HC Deb 24 March 1925 vol 182 c231
65 and 66. Mr. SAKLATVALA

asked the Secretary of State for War (1) if he will inform this House, from the answers given to question 5 in the enlistment form filled up by men desirous of joining the Army Supplementary Reserve, the number of engine drivers and firemen, and the number of electricians, so far obtained for service in that unit;

(2) if the number of recruits required for the Army Supplementary Reserves from different technical trades and occupations are being enlisted in satisfactory numbers from each trade; and, if not, in what trades is there a deficiency?


I have nothing to add to my statement on the introduction of Army Estimates, and to my reply on the 3rd instant to the hon. Member.


In view of the unsatisfactory nature of the answers continually given, I beg to give notice that I will raise this question on the Adjournment.
