asked the Secretary of State for Defence (1) if he will publish in the Official Report an analysis of the ages of male recruits to each of the Armed Services during each of the last two complete 164W years for which this information is available;
(2) if he will publish an analysis by age of those leaving the Armed Services for all reasons, during each of the last two complete years for which this information is available.
