HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 c1380
46. Sir R. Glyn

asked the Prime Minister whether he is yet in a position to make any statement in regard to the future of the Sea Cadets and Sea Scouts and their recognition by the Admiralty, of Army Cadets and the conditions of service for officers serving with them and the full establishment that will be authorised by the War Office, and of the A.T.C.; and whether any establishment has been agreed so that the extra work of these cadets may be carried forward with confidence to the post-war period.

Mr. Attlee

As my hon. and gallant Friend is, no doubt, aware, it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to maintain the pre-service cadet organisations on a voluntary basis after the war. I can assure him that the means of carrying out this intention in the post-war years are receiving close attention in the three Service Departments, but it is as yet too early to give the details of these plans.

Sir R. Glyn

Will the right hon. Gentleman explain why the conditions of officers serving with cadets vary according to the various Services and Army cadet officers receive worse treatment in camps than any other officers?

Mr. Attlee

That seems to me to be an entirely different question. Perhaps the hon. Member will put it down to the Secretary of State for War.
