§ 32. Sir David Price
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the present state of recruitment to the Guards Division.
§ Mr. Wiggin
Recruitment to the Guards Division is very satisfactory. Soldier recruitment is expected to achieve its 1982–83 target and, although there will be a shortfall in the number of officers recruited during 1982–83, it will be very small and is not expected to cause any difficulties.
