asked the Secretary of State for war what number of men applied to enlist in the Army in the borough of West Ham for the last 12 months or the latest available date; what percentage were rejected on medical grounds; and what was the percentage of the applicants for enlistment rejected on the grounds of defective vision?

I regret that separate figures for the borough of West Ham are not available.
