HC Deb 01 July 1919 vol 117 cc748-9
16. Colonel YATE

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in the consideration of the future status of the Territorial Force, consideration will also be given to the cadet farce, and whether officers who have given their services so freely in the formation and encouragement of cadet corps will be given the same privileges as regards rank and right to wear uniform on retirement, etc., as are granted to officers of the Territorial Force?

Captain GUEST

The future of the cadet force is now being considered and reviewed along with other problems connected with the future of the Territorial Force. With regard to the latter part of the question, I am afraid that it is not possible to give cadet officers the privileges accorded to Territorial Force officers on retirement as regards rank and the right to wear uniform, unless they pass the same tests as are required of Territorial Force officers. The question of providing for this will be considered among other matters connected with the future of the cadet force.
