The secretaries of all County Cadet Committees and officers commanding Cadet units have been given the addresses of their local education authorities, and have been instructed to get in touch with those authorities, in order that information about the Cadet Force may be given to boys when they are interviewed. The Board of Education has similarly arranged to notify to the local education authorities the names and addresses of the local cadet authorities who can supply information about the Cadet Force.

Will my right hon. and gallant Friend see that the information which has been given is carried out, as the boys are being interviewed this week, and it is very important not to raise hopes unless the arrangements for fulfilling them are absolutely clear and adequate?
