§ Mr. Onslow
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether consideration is being given to measures to enable members of cadet forces to enrol in the TAVR at the age of 16 years.
§ Mr. Robert C. Brown
This has been considered, but such measures would deprive the cadet forces of the valuable services of their more senior cadets, and would be counter-productive. There is already very close co-operation between the TAVR and the cadet forces with regard to training.
