HC Deb 05 June 1957 vol 571 c116W
Mr. Carmichael

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state, for Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow, respectively, the total number of boys released from school for potato-harvesting in 1956 from junior secondary, senior secondary, local authority fee-paying and private fee-paying schools, giving separate figures for each type of school.

Mr. Maclay:

The number of boys exempted from attendance at school for work in the 1956 potato harvest in the undernoted areas were:

Welbeck College to continue at full capacity in the future.

Mr. John Hare:

Yes. Even with the smaller Army, Sandhurst will most certainly continue to need its present quota of cadets from Welbeck College in order to provide the number of Regular officers we need for technical corps.
