§ 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.
