I do not think the hon. and gallant Member has quite understood the point. This is not going to give the associations administrative responsibility for running the Sea Cadet Corps, but in areas where there happen to be joint activities of the Sea Cadet Corps and cadet forces of the Army and the Air Force, this would apply. That is why it is unnecessary to incorporate the Amendment in the Bill. Reference has been made to what the Admiralty wants in this connection. The Admiralty, however, are entirely satisfied that their position is fully safeguarded under the Bill as it stands.
