§ 35. Major-General Sir Alfred Knox
asked the Secretary of State for India the number of recruits to the Indian Army who have volunteered from each province since the beginning of the war?
§ The Secretary of State for India (Mr. Amery)
I have now received from the Government of India the figures up to the end of September, 1940, which have been published in India, and will, with my hon. and gallant Friend's permission, circulate them. Since that date it has been decided not to publish any further figures.
§ Sir A. Knox
Do not the figures show the outstanding loyalty and patriotism of the population of the Punjab?
|Following are the figures:|
|North-West Frontier Province||5,506|
|Central Provinces and Berar||899|
