HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 c469W
Mr. McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he has information as to the number and proportion of service men who are left handed.

Mr. Lamont

Records on this information could not be obtained except at disproportionate cost. However, it is reasonable to expect the proportion of left-handed service men to be in the region of 10 per cent. in line with the population at large.
