HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 c499W
Mr. Perkins

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is satisfied that the arrangements for co-operation between the Army Cadets and the Boy Scouts Association are working satisfactorily; and will he consider the scope for the further development of this co-operation?

Sir J. Grigg

An agreement was made in April, 1942, which laid down the policy for co-operation between the Army Cadet Force and the Boy Scouts Association. I have no evidence to show that the agreement is not working satisfactorily and in fact a spirit of friendly co-operation exists between the Headquarters of the two Organisations. Close contact is maintained between representatives of the Boy Scouts Association and the Army Cadet Force and I shall always be pleased to consider any proposals for further development of this co-operation.
