HC Deb 21 May 1946 vol 423 cc180-1
37. Mr. K. Lindsay

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any decision has yet been reached to establish a voluntary combined pre-Service training unit in secondary schools.

Mr. Bellenger

No, Sir, but the matter is being considered by the three Service Departments.

Mr. Lindsay

Could the hon. Gentleman try and get a decision on this matter, because as long ago as last January we were told that a decision was going to be made and it is very difficult for schools to know what action to take, whichever way the decision goes?

Mr. Bellenger

There are difficulties in the way which it is not within the power of the War Office to remove entirely, but I will certainly see that a decision is expedited as far as possible.
