§ Captain Kerby
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what are the strengths of Service apprentices in schools and the number of Regular members of the Armed Forces who are required to fill staff appointments in these apprentice schools.
§ Mr. Reynolds
The strengths of Service apprentices in schools total 7,704. The number of staff employed totals 901 officers and 3,276 other ranks on instructional and administrative duties, but some of these are employed on both apprentice and adult training, and it is not practicable to provide separate figures of staff employed on apprentice training.
