Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Ward:

I must agree that as much general service training as possible should be given to everybody. Whether one thinks that a week would be enough or not is a matter of opinion. This is a matter which is left to the discretion of commanding officers, and the task of every station varies. I am quite prepared to look again at this matter and see whether these people who are not concerned with general service but are doing special jobs of this kind should do a little more general service, but it does mean taking them off their jobs for the time being, which means that the task they are doing has to run light to that extent.
