§ 29. Mr. W. Griffiths
asked the Secretary of State for War to whom the Army form B 2761 is issued; and why those completing it are asked detailed personal questions about father, mother, wife, and other near relatives.
§ Mr. Profumo
The Army Form 2761 to which the hon. Member refers was abolished earlier this year and replaced by an inter-Service form which will in future be completed by all Army recruits and I believe by those of the Royal Navy and R.A.F. also. Particulars called for in the current form represent the minimum information about the soldier's background required by my Department.
