§ 63. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the Secretary of State for War the number and strength of the senior and junior 607 cadet corps in this country in each of the years 1898, 1906, 1914, and the latest available figure, together with the Government financial contribution in each case?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
The senior and junior officers' training corps contingents were instituted in 1908; the cadet corps were first officially recognised in 1910. I have therefore had a table prepared showing the figures for 1914 and 1928, and I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
