§ 48. Sir GEORGE SCOTT ROBERTSON
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the importance of thorough war training, he will consider the advisability of establishing cadet schools for officers, more or less on the model of Osborne and Dartmouth, where boys from the preparatory school age, at a moderate cost to parents and with perhaps the aid of local and other scholarships, may be trained systematically for a scientific military career.
§ Mr. TENNANT
Whatever the merits of this idea might be, its fruits could hardly mature in time to affect the present War. At present all energy must be concentrated on training those whose age renders it possible that they may be used in this War.
