Duchess of ATHOLL
asked the Secretary of State for India the number of reserves and cadets, respectively, included in the 13,160 members of the railway battalions of the Indian auxiliary force in 1920 and in the 13,004 members of these battalions in 1932; and how many of the cadets enrolled in 1932 are of an age at which they could be called up?
§ Sir S. HOARE
There are no reliable figures for 1920 in this respect. The figures for 1932 are 5,179 reserves and 63 cadets. I am afraid that information is not available with regard to the last part of the question.
