Maj.-Gen. Jack d'Avigdor-Goldsmid
asked the Minister of State for Defence if he will make a statement about recruitment to the new Territorial Army Volunteer Reserve units formed on 1st April, 1971.
At 30th October, 1971, these units had reached a strength of about 5,300 which is about 50 per cent. of their establishment. This response is most encouraging and represents a faster rate of build up than had been expected.
