Oral Answers to Questions — British Army. – in the House of Commons on 21st February 1922.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to make any reduction in the staff at Sandhurst for the training of cadets?
I do not think any immediate reduction in the instructional staff of 62 persons for 700 cadets is practicable but I am reviewing the whole position.
May I ask whether at the present moment there is a staff of 562 persons to look after 700 cadets?
The instructional staff number not 562 but 62.
I referred to the whole staff.
I have said I am looking into the whole question.
How is it that 12 cadets are considered sufficient for an instructor at the Royal Military College, while under the Education Department a teacher has to instruct 50 pupils?
That question should not be addressed to me.
