Abstract: Previous results on the characteristic numbers of $ Sp$-manifolds are extended in three different ways. I. It is shown that the primitive symplectic Pontrjagin class evaluated on a $ 4({2^j} - 1)$ dimensional $ Sp$-manifold always gives a number divisible by $ 8$. This forms an analogue to a well-known result of Milnor concerning $ U$-manifolds. II. It is shown that some of the results of Floyd as well as an analogue of the previous result can be obtained for 'pseudo-symplectic' manifolds. III. Results are generalised to $ (Sp,fr)$ manifolds.
