HC Deb 07 July 1924 vol 175 c1789W

asked the Secretary of State for War why some secondary schools are provided with public money for the purchase of ammunition for their cadet corps while other secondary schools are refused this grant and have to purchase the ammunition themselves; and will he take steps to ensure that all are treated alike?


Schools which maintain a contingent of the Officers Training Corps receive a small capitation grant out of which they can purchase ammunition, but schools which maintain cadet corps only do not.
