HC Deb 23 June 1937 vol 325 cc1200-1
68. Mr. Cartland

asked the Secretary of State for War when he proposes to reconsider the decision of his Department not to grant any assistance towards the encouragement of physical training in the Territorial Army?

Lieut.-Colonel Sir A. Lambert Ward (Treasurer of the Household)

The regular non-commissioned officers are required to train the Regular Army, but Territorial Army non-commissioned officers are already allowed to train as physical training instructors and get extra pay for so acting. Moreover physical training instruction counts towards the number of drills required. The decision that assistance additional to the above cannot at present be given will be kept constantly under review.
