§ 11. Major-General Sir Alfred Knox
asked the Secretary of State for War what was the number of applicants for enlistment in the Army in the month of February, and how many men were accepted?
§ Mr. Kennedy
Are there any statistics to show how many of these recruits were unemployed at the date of enlistment?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
No, Sir. That was not the question I was asked, but the major number of recruits are employed at the time when they make application to join the Army.
Mr. J. J. Davidson
Were any of these recruits accepted under the temporary scheme for building up the physique of recruits by a course of better feeding?
§ Mr. H. G. Williams
Can the right hon. Gentleman say how many of them were present at the meeting in Trafalgar Square the other Sunday which was asking us to go to war?
