HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 c317W
98. Mr. Rowland

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many women joined and left the women's services in the last recorded year; what percentage turnover of the total strength of the women's services this represents; and how this percentage compares with the turnover of men in the armed forces.

Mr. Reynolds

About 5,800 joined in 1966, and 5,600 left; this is a turnover of 42.6 per cent. compared with 11.8 per cent. for men.
