HC Deb 08 November 1961 vol 648 c63W
76. Mr. Kershaw

asked the Secretary of State for War what steps he has taken since last June to increase recruiting for the British Army in dependent territories overseas; and with what success.

Mr. Profumo

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answer I gave my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Arundel and Shoreham (Captain Kerby) this Monday. In addition to our recruiting campaign in the Seychelles and Fiji, we are also recruiting in Jamaica as a pilot scheme for the West Indies as a whole. It is as yet too early to know the results.
