§ 33. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for War what was the expenditure incurred on recruiting by his Department from 1st January to 31st May, 1950; what was the sum spent on publicity; and what was the cost per recruit.
§ Mr. Strachey
I regret that the figures for the period in question are not available. During the financial year, 1949–50, £187,750 was spent by the War Department on Regular recruiting and publicity services, of which £26,100 was on publicity alone. This worked out at £7 4s. for each Regular recruit.
