To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer of 30 November 2011, Official Report, column 974W, on armed forces: cadets, if he will consider extending the central provision of insurance for sea cadet forces to cover buildings insurance.
Sea cadet units are independent charities in their own right, affiliated to the Marine Society and sea. cadets subject to certain conditions being in place. Each unit therefore is responsible for funding its own running costs, including buildings insurance, which they do in the main with considerable success. The Marine Society and sea cadets provide a competitive package through their insurers with a free direct debit service for units to spread this through the year. There are no current plans to increase the central provision to include buildings insurance.
