HC Deb 01 December 1931 vol 260 cc940-1

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether it is proposed by the Government to renew the grant to the cadet corps?


His Majesty's Government have decided to reverse the decision which was taken in March, 1930, and to accord official recognition to the British National Cadet Association. In the present circumsances of stringency, however, His Majesty's Government have not felt able to accept any financial liability. The British National Cadet Association have gratefully accepted this decision, the details of which will appear from correspondence which has passed between the War Office and the Association. This correspondence will be published and I am having a copy placed in the Library. The necessary regulations will be prepared and issued to all concerned.


Would it not be a good thing to divert the needless expenditure on land taxation valuation into this honourable course?
