§ Mr. MANDER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what grants are being 679W made from Admiralty funds for the purpose of training civilians; and the names of the associations or bodies concerned?
§ Mr. AMMON
If the hon. Member has in mind the expenses of training and maintaining the various reserve forces, I would refer him to pages 126 to 140 of the Navy Estimates, in which the provision made for this service is explained in detail. In addition, a sum of about £200 is provided for the training of members of the voluntary aid detachments and is referred to on page 60 of the Estimates. Grants of £100 and £540 respectively to the Central Joint Council administering the voluntary aid detachments and to the central associations or committees administering officially recognised sea cadets corps units (including the boys corps attached to Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve divisions and the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve Cadets Corps attached to Royal Naval shore establishments) are also provided for in the current year's Estimates.
