HC Deb 23 May 1978 vol 950 c464W
44. Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on defence policy in the light of recruitment difficulties.

Mr. Wellbeloved

Defence policy remains as set out in the 1978 "Statement on the Defence Estimates" (Cmnd. 7099). Recruiting has been difficult in some areas and we are watching the situation carefully.
