HC Deb 07 July 1910 vol 18 c1787

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn by county associations to the difficulty in raising and maintaining cadet corps owing to the alteration of the original regulation promising free equipment; and whether he can see his way to providing such corps free of cost with arms and equipment from any stores that may have been discarded as obsolete for other units?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Haldane

The money Grant for these corps was fixed on the understanding that there would be no free issues. I am considering what can be done in the way of sale of obsolete stores at low prices.
