§ 83. Major Beamish
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will make a statement on the serious shortage of suitable instructors in the Territorial Army for training the National Service intakes over the next few years; and what proposals he has to remedy this shortage.
§ Mr. Strachey
Every effort is being made to remedy the deficiency in the number of suitable instructors in the Territorial Army by encouraging experienced men to join. It is also hoped that a considerable proportion of National Service men will, on transfer from whole to part-time service, become volunteers themselves, and provide a source of junior, and later more experienced, instructors.
