HC Deb 10 July 1957 vol 573 c50W
Sir A. Harvey

asked the Minister of Defence if he will make a statement on recruitment of officers and other ranks for the three Services since the White Paper was published.

Mr. Sandys

During the last three months, the rate of recruiting has declined, but it is too early to say whether this represents more than the temporary hesitation which was to be expected after an announcement of such radical changes in our defence policy.
