HC Deb 02 March 1948 vol 448 cc46-7W
37. Mr. Low

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will make a statement setting out the latest position as to recruiting to the Regular Army, showing progress in each arm and branch of the Service, separately, and, in particular, how many volunteers are still needed to bring each arm or branch of the Service up to its peacetime strength.

Mr. M. Stewart

It would be contrary to present policy to publish information about the detailed1 composition of the Army. As regards recruiting to the Regular Army as a whole, I would refer the hon. Member to paragraphs 9 to 12 of the Memorandum relating to the Army Estimates 1948–49 (Cmd. 7332).
