§ Mr. Stratton Mills
asked the Secretary of State for Defence, in view of the recent incident at St. Gabriel's School, Belfast, during the showing of an Army recruiting film, if he will indicate his policy on the showing of similar films by his Department in schools in Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. Mulley
We offer information about careers in the Services to schools throughout the United Kingdom and provide these with speakers and films when invited to do so; I believe that this policy, which is beneficial to recruitting, is widely welcomed and do not propose that it should be altered because of the isloated incident to which the hon. Member refers, in which members of the Irish Republican Army assaulted a lecturer and projectionist in the course of a film show.
