HC Deb 19 January 1981 vol 997 cc49-50W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many people joined the volunteer reserves of the Royal Navy in each of the quarters of 1980.

Mr. Speed

The information is not available in the form requested nor are the figures for the whole of 1980 yet to hand. Available figures are:

expect that most of this will be borne by NATO infrastructure funds and that the United Kingdom contribution will be less than £1.5 million.
