asked the Secretary of State for War what is the deficiency below establishment of the Regular Army; and what is the position as regards the autumn drafts to India?

The deficiency on the establishment of the Regular Army at home, abroad and in India is approx- imately 10,000. As regards the second part of the question, it will be possible to meet requirements for India, but in the case of the infantry, deficiencies in certain battalions will be offset by surpluses in others.
