HC Deb 08 March 1938 vol 332 c1712
47. Mr. Kennedy

asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the desirability of instituting a system of general military training solely for purposes of effective national Defence and in order to obviate a professionally-controlled force being used either for purposes of aggression abroad or the establishment of military dictatorship at home?

The Prime Minister

I would refer the right hon. Member to the answer which I gave on 24th February in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, East (Mr. Mander).
