HC Deb 03 December 1934 vol 295 cc1242-3W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office the latest figures with regard to the cost and personnel of the Officers' Training Corps, and the names of the school cadet corps awaiting recognition as Officers' Training Corps?


The strength of the Officers' Training Corps (excluding permanent staff) on 1st October, 1934, was: Senior division, 154 officers and 4,414 cadets; junior division, 597 officers and 23,746 cadets. Figures of the cost are given on pages 64 and 65 of the current Army Estimates. I am sending the hon. Member a list of schools which, from time to time, have applied to form contingents.
