HC Deb 08 April 1930 vol 237 c1992W

asked the Secretary of State for War how many officers and men at present serving in the Regular Army are unfit for general service?


If the hon. Member refers to the number of officers and other ranks in hospital, the figures on 31st January last for stations at home and abroad, administered by the War Office, were officers 68 and other. ranks 2,755. Apart from those who are temporarily unfit, no officers are retained on full pay, and no soldiers are kept with the Colours, unless they are fit for general service.
