HC Deb 11 December 1967 vol 756 cc51-2W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for keeping Welshmen in the armed forces together in Welsh units.

Mr. Boyden

I assume the hon. Gentleman is referring to the reorganisation of the Infantry which was announced in the House on 10th May, 1967.

It is anticipated that under the divisional system men will serve the greater part of their time with the battalion of their choice.
