49. Mr. Chetwynd

asked the Minister of Defence if he will state the number of non-Regular Service personnel who had completed four years' and three years' service, respectively, on 31st December, 1946.

Mr. Alexander

So far as the Army is concerned I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for War on 26th November. I am sending him a copy. I regret that comparable figures for the Royal Navy are not available. I will, with permission, circulate details for the Royal Air Force in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following are the details:

15,900 86,400 102,300
(b) 4 years.
Officers. Other Ranks. Total
