HC Deb 07 November 1939 vol 353 cc61-2W
Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Secretary of State for War how many recruits offered themselves for enlistment between the ages of 22 to 35 up to and including Saturday, 4th November; how many were accepted; what were the corresponding figures for Scotland; and whether he has any statement to make on the subject?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

Between seventy and eighty thousand men have enlisted voluntarily since the beginning of the war in classes for which recruiting was open, but figures for the ages of 22 to 35 are not available.
