HC Deb 06 November 1945 vol 415 c1243W
Major Beamish

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the present rate of call-up of Italians in Italy to the three armed Services; what standing Navy, Army and Air Force the Italians are aiming at having; and whether the Government has agreed to these arrangements.

Mr. Lawson

I am not aware of the rate of call-up at the moment, but I am making inquiries and will write to the hon. and gallant Member. The size of the standing Navy, Army and Air Force of Italy will be decided in the Peace Treaty. I cannot say what is the aim of the Italian Government in that respect.
