HC Deb 08 November 1932 vol 270 c164
4. Brigadier-General NATION

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what is the present deficiency in the strength of the Regular Army at home and the Territorial Army; and can he give the House an indication of the steps that have or will be taken to reduce these deficiencies?


The deficiencies on 1st October were Regular Army 7,400, and Territorial Army 43,300. Recruiting for the Regulars is progressing satisfactorily, and it is earnestly hoped that the large deficiency in the Territorial Army, which is mainly due to the failure to hold camps during the present year, will be considerably reduced in the near future.
