HC Deb 12 November 1914 vol 68 cc167-8W

asked the Prime Minister whether, as in the case of the Regular Army, a Return will be given of the religion of all the recruits for the New Armies now being formed, in order that a healthy rivalry between all religions may help recruiting?


The Return asked for cannot be given, as, in order to save labour that is not absolutely necessary, officers in charge of records have been told that this year the usual Annual Return of religious denominations need not be rendered.
