HC Deb 28 May 1895 vol 34 cc468-9
MR. A. M. BROOKFIELD (Sussex, Rye)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether any means have ever been taken to acquaint soldiers in the various garrison towns with the facilities now given for technical education; and whether he will make inquiries as to the feasibility of encouraging Warrant and Non-commissioned Officers and men in availing themselves of such facilities, when doing so would not interfere with their military duties?


said: Soldiers have the same facilities as other inhabitants of garrison towns for ascertaining what technical instruction is to be there obtained; and they are permitted to avail themselves of any such instruction when the hours of attendance do not interfere with their military duties.
