§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will estimate the number, full-time equivalents, of experienced regular members of Her Majesty's forces who will be required to operate his plans for one year training of 16-year-old volunteers.
§ Mr. Wiggin
Participants in the armed services youth training scheme will train and work alongside other service men and women. It is therefore not practicable to estimate the numbers of service personnel who will be involved in operating the scheme.
