HC Deb 08 March 1966 vol 725 c475W
Sir Richard Glyn

asked the Secretary of Defence how many all ranks would be required to make up the present units and formations of the Regular Army to full war establishment; and if he will give corresponding figures for the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.

Mr. Healey

So far as the Army is concerned, I have nothing to add to the Answer given by my right hon. Friend the then Minister of Defence for the Army on 14th December, 1965; the figure for the Royal Navy is about 14,000 and for the Royal Air Force about 4,000.
