§ Major STEEL
asked the Secretary of State for War why secondary schools which maintain a contingent of the Officers' Training Corps receive a capitation grant for ammunition, while those schools which maintain a cadet corps do not receive any grant?
§ Major ATTLEE
The reason is that a contingent of the Officers' Training Corps is, generally speaking, of greater potential military value than a cadet corps. Also the conditions applicable to the two organisations differ and are, generally speaking, more exigent in the case of the Officers' Training Corps.
