§ 20. Mr. Gwilym Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what further progress he has made towards using jobcentres for military recruitment; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Wellbeloved
Staff of careers information offices already maintain contacts with local jobcentres, and my Department is actively considering, with the Manpower Services Commission, how 453W these links might be improved. Recruiting and selection for the Armed Forces is, of course, a specialised task, but job-centres can and do provide a useful point of contact with potential applicants.
