HC Deb 14 November 1960 vol 630 cc12-3W
68. Mr. Wigg

asked the Minister of Defence whether the conditions laid down in paragraph 48 of the 1957 Defence White Paper, Command Paper No. 124, that, if voluntary recruiting fails to produce the number required, the country will have to face the need for some form of compulsory service to bridge the gap, still remains the policy of Her Majesty's Government; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Profumo

I have been asked to reply.

Yes. But as my right hon. Friend the Minister of Defence informed the hon. Member on 22nd June last, we have no plans for the continuance of the call-up after this year.
