HC Deb 27 November 1945 vol 416 c1082
77. Major Wyatt

asked the Secretary of State for War whether there has been any modification in the syllabus of O.C.T.U. courses since VJ-Day.

Mr. Lawson

Yes, Sir. They have been modified to meet the requirements as they now exist. Some subjects, essential as preparation for imminent battle, have been omitted to allow more time for problems of general administration, man-management and recreational training.

Mr. Evelyn Walkden

Could my right hon. Friend say whether there is a modification of the period? Are there now 14, 16 or 18 week courses?

Mr. Lawson

No, I could not say without notice.
