HC Deb 22 June 1998 vol 314 c372W
15. Mrs. Gilroy

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans his Department has to improve the quality of education and training in the armed forces. [45236]

Dr. Reid

The Armed Forces already spend substantial sums to ensure high-quality training for Service Personnel. As part of the Strategic Defence Review, we are considering the scope to improve further the education and training provided, and to ensure that the qualifications Service personnel receive are fully recognised and transferable when they return to civilian life.
