§ MR. MOND
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can state what is the number of men in the United Kingdom, whose age does not exceed forty-five, who have passed through the Army and Reserve, and no longer constitute any part of His Majesty's regular 210 forces; and whether he can state what number of such men are physically capable of serving in a Home defence Army.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) No statistics are maintained of ex-soldiers, other than pensioners, who have passed through the Army and the Reserve. It is regretted, therefore, that it is not practicable to give my hon. friend the information he requires.
