HC Deb 25 March 1970 vol 798 c418W
Mr. Roebuck

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is aware that the number of officers leaving the Army and the Royal Navy prematurely after three-year degree courses at Oxford University sponsored by his Department is approximately four times higher, expressed as a percentage, than the figure for other officers; and whether he will make a statement about the matter.

Mr. Hattersley

Records are not maintained in a form which would enable me to comment constructively on the Question posed by my hon. Friend. If, however, he would like to make his information available to me I shall be glad to investigate the matter.
