HC Deb 25 January 1955 vol 536 c4W
64. Mr. Wigg

asked the Secretary of State for War how many of the 13,322 men who enlisted on Regular engagements of three years with the Colours and four years with the Reserve during the period 1st November, 1951, to 31st March, 1952, have, up to 31st December, 1954, prolonged their service.

Mr. F. Maclean

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply by my right hon. Friend to his similar Question on 9th December last, in which he said that available statistics of prolongations were not related to the precise month of enlistment. Similarly, they cannot be related to any particular group of men without a special and lengthy examination.
