§ 36. Mr. Hattersley
asked the Minister of State for Defence what proposals he has for further alterations in the system of training Army officers.
§ Mr. G. Johnson Smith
Following the introduction of the new pattern of officer cadet training, which I described during the debate on the Army Estimates on 16th March, a much wider review of the training of Army officers is to be made, covering the time from first commissioning up to promotion to lieutenant-colonel and including staff training. When the terms of reference and composition of the reviewing body are settled I will make a further announcement.—[Vol. 833. c. 784–5.]
