§ Mr. Goodhart
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many officers there will be in each of the Services out of the 341,000 Service men planned for the forces in 1973.
§ Mr. Boyden
I would expect the overall proportion of officers to be approximately the same as that forecast for 1st April, 1969, in Annex A of the Statement on the Defence Estimates, 1968 [Cmnd. 3540].
