HC Deb 03 June 1930 vol 239 cc1954-5
31. Captain P. MACDONALD

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, with a view to improving recruiting returns, he will consider the practice of recruiting marches by county regiments in their territorial areas during the summer months?


I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that this method of recruiting has not been overlooked by the military authorities, but experience has shown that the direct results obtained are small: and the interference with training and the cost involved by these marches render unjustifiable their adoption frequently or on a large scale.
