HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 cc268-9W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the total population of Gibraltar; what proportion is Service population; how many places there are where intoxicants are sold; and what provision there is in the way of recreation and reading rooms for the Services, and by whom such rooms are run?


According to the latest figures available, the civil population of Gibraltar numbers 18,061, and the Army troops stationed there amount to 150 officers and 2,800 other ranks. Full information as to the remainder of the question is not at my disposal, and I am asking the Governor to furnish a report.
