HC Deb 27 October 1954 vol 531 cc1904-5
16. Mrs. Mann

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what protests he has received about the closing of the Coiling-wood Sea Cadets Unit, Glasgow; and when it is intended to reopen this unit.

Commander Noble

None, Sir. The administration of Sea Cadet units is the responsibility of the Sea Cadet Council and not of the Admiralty. I understand, however, that it is the intention to reopen the unit as soon as questions of accommodation and local administration can be solved.

Mrs. Mann

If I submit a document of evidence about the closing of this unit would it be submitted to the proper quarter and be considered before it is reopened?

Commander Noble

Yes, I will certainly be prepared to do that if the hon. Lady would care to send me any communication. The Sea Cadets are run by the Sea Cadet Council, on which the Admiralty has a representative.
