§ 45. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Minister of Defence how many recruits were obtained as a result of the Prime Minister's recent broadcast speech.
§ The Minister of Defence (Mr. A. V. Alexander)
It must be obvious to my hon. Friend that it is not possible to give an answer to such a Question in relation to my right hon. Friend's broadcast on 19th January or to isolate the results of this single feature of the recruiting campaign.
§ Mr. Hughes
Could not the Minister give an indication whether the figure went up or down: has he not got control of the Secret Service which could find out?
