HC Deb 16 November 1960 vol 630 c40W
59. Mr. Sydney Irving

asked the Secretary of State for War how many National Service men who signed on for a Regular engagement subsequently purchased their release.

Mr. Profumo

The figures in respect of the 3-year Regular engagement, to which the great majority of National Service men transfer, are as follows:

1957–58 3
1958–59 5
1959–60 21
Figures in respect of other Regular engagements would take longer to assess.
