HC Deb 13 December 1929 vol 233 cc852-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War what percentage of boys who join Officers' Training Corps and Cadet Corps eventually join any branch of the Army?


The figures for 1928 are shown below. In the case of the Cadet Corps they are compiled from records obtained from officers commanding Cadet units, and are not necessarily exhaustive.

pensions being paid to the widows and children of men who are accidentally killed when serving in the armed forces abroad if they are killed when off duty, even though the accident is in no way attributable to the soldier's negligence or fault?


I regret that I am unable to alter the regulations on the lines suggested by my hon. Friend.
