§ Mr. John Hall
asked the Secretary of State for War what measures he is taking to encourage recruiting into those corps which are getting too small a share of recruits in proportion to their needs.
§ Mr. Profumo
In order to improve recruiting in certain corps which are not getting a sufficiently large share of recruits in proportion to their needs, I propose 103W to allow certain men who enlist on a 22-year engagement the option of leaving after four years instead of six. This will apply to the two main trades in the Royal Army Medical Corps and the Royal Army Dental Corps, and to all men in the Royal Military Police and the Army Catering Corps.
