HC Deb 11 March 1942 vol 378 c1042
25. Mr. Kenneth Lindsay

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, what arrangements have now been made for the intake of an increased number of Sea Cadets?

Mr. George Hall

The arrangements in question are still under consideration, and I am not yet in a position to give details.

Mr. Lindsay

Is my hon. Friend aware that many boys who have now registered and been interviewed have elected to join the units and no units exist in London? Is he aware that I warned the First Lord a month ago about this, and is the matter still under consideration because the present position raises false hopes and is contrary to the whole spirit of the thing?

Mr. Hall

The First Lord is fully seized of the importance of expediting a decision and the organisation in connection with this matter. I can assure my hon. Friend that he can well leave the matter in the hands of the First Lord.
