asked the Secretary of State for War how many residents in the boroughs of Brighton and Hove have been called up to attend the annual camp of the 411th (Sussex) Coast Regiment, Royal Artillery, Territorial Army, from 31st July; what are their professions; and how many are directly employed in holiday industries.

Six officers and 83 other ranks resident in Brighton and Hove are to train with this unit. There are three bankers, one doctor, one insurance broker, one university student, four teachers, 20 clerks, 14 builders, 11 men in the engineering trade, five drivers, six shop assistants, two electricians, one policeman, one railway worker, six men in the catering trade and 13 in miscellaneous jobs. I cannot say exactly how many are connected directly with the holiday trades.
