65. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for War in which of the Colonial Territories, other than the West Indies, he is now recruiting for the Army; what is the expenditure incurred in each Territory; and what have been the results up to 31st October.

Mr. Profumo

Apart from the West Indies, we are now recruiting in the Seychelles and in Fiji. Enlistments to 31st October are as follows:

  • Seychelles—
    • 127 men.
    • 47 women.
  • Fiji—
    • 200 men.
    • 12 women.

It is too early to assess the expenditure involved.
