§ Mr. Kershaw
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many Mauritians are serving with the Armed Forces of the Crown; in which Service they are; and what arrangements he has made to make available in Mauritius information and facilities to Mauritians wishing to join the British Forces.
§ Mr. Kirk
There are no Mauritians in the Royal Navy. Fifty-eight are serving in the Royal Air Force. The numbers serving in the Army are not readily available. There is no Service garrison on Mauritius and no recruiting office. Applications and requests for information about enlistment in the Services are answered direct from the Ministry of Defence.
