HC Deb 05 March 1946 vol 420 c165
31. Captain Swingler

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give an estimate of the total number of men to be called up for military service between 1st January and 31st December, 1946.

Mr. Isaacs

The approved intake into the Armed Forces from 1st January to 30th June, 1946, is 151,500; this total includes volunteers and men called up under the National Service Acts. I am not yet in a position to announce the numbers to be recruited for the Forces in the second half of 1946.
