asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many units of the sea scouts branch of the Boy Scouts movement have been recognised; and if any obstacles are being placed to the recognition of further units?

Mr. YOUNG:

Five such units have been recognised since the Boys Scouts' Associa- tion was recognised by the Admiralty in September, 1919. The Treasury has asked that additional units of Cadet Corps, etc., shall not be recognised pending further consideration of the extent to which provision can be made for grants to such bodies in present financial circumstances.
