§ Mr. Roebuck
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is aware that the number of officers leaving the Army and the Royal Navy prematurely after three-year degree courses at Oxford University sponsored by his Department is approximately four times higher, expressed as a percentage, than the figure for other officers; and whether he will make a statement about the matter.
§ Mr. Hattersley
Records are not maintained in a form which would enable me to comment constructively on the Question posed by my hon. Friend. If, however, he would like to make his information available to me I shall be glad to investigate the matter.
