The independent National Recognition of the Armed Forces study by my hon. Friend Mr. Davies recommended expanding cadet forces within state schools. Lord Adonis and my hon. Friend Derek Twigg, the Parliamentary Under Secretaries of State with policy responsibility for this area, have met twice in recent months to discuss the expansion of cadet forces in state schools, and our Departments will continue work closely together on this issue.
