§ Mr. Skinner
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what steps he is taking to prevent the Territorial Army from becoming involved once more in manoeuvres with Column 88; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. William Rodgers
We have no reason to believe that any unit or members of the TAVR have been involved with "Column 88". Investigation has disclosed that some members of "Column 88" were involved, without the knowledge of the ACF authorities, in a minor Army Cadet Force exercise last year. In view of this, the Army Cadet Force is being reminded of the need for the greatest care and judgment in sanctioning participation by outside organisations and individuals in ACF affairs.
