HC Deb 30 May 1962 vol 660 c122W
Mr. Morris

asked the Secretary of State for War by what date it is now expected that the British Army of the Rhine forces will reach the amended treaty figure of 55,000.

Mr. Profumo

As I explained in my reply to the hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Northampton (Mr. Paget) on 23rd May, this depends on our recruiting campaign, and I am not prepared to give a target date. However, the Regular strength of B.A.O.R. is rising steadily.
