HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 c35W
91. Mr. N. Macpherson

asked the Secretary of State for War why recruits are permitted to sign on for enlistment in the Regular Army before they have undergone their recruiting office qualifying test.

Mr. Head

Recruits who are required to undergo the pre-enlistment selection test at a recruiting office are not permitted to enlist before they have successfully completed it. Certain men with specified qualifications are exempted from the test.
