§ 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.
