§ Mr. Cordle
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is aware that the Royal Corps of Transport is carrying out military training in Dorset on Sundays involving heavy transport and troops in cross-country exercises; and if he will make a statement of policy as to Sunday training by Regular Army personnel in peacetime.
§ Mr. Boyden
Such training has taken place. Our general policy is, however, to avoid the movement of Regular Army units to and from training areas on Sundays.
