HC Deb 10 November 1980 vol 992 c57W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many people were recruited into the Armed Services from Wales for each year from 1969 onwards.

Mr. Pattie

The following figures up- date the answer I gave to the hon. Member on 12 December 1979—[Vol. 975, c.791]. In 1979–80, careers information offices in Wales recruited 2,712 service personnel. The corresponding figure for April-September this year is 1,508. These figures do not include officers or QARNNS Service women, who are recruited on a central basis and for whom regional figures are not readily available.
