I have met my hon. Friend Mr Brazier and Colonel Hugh Purcell to discuss a range of issues including military academies.

Ministers have also read with interest the report "Military Academies: Tackling disadvantage, improving ethos and changing outcomes" published by ResPublica in January this year. I welcome the role the military and cadet forces can play in engaging young people, and I have asked officials from the Department to discuss with the Reserves Forces and Cadets Association the ideas set out in this paper.
