Cadet Forces Get £4.4 Million!

#1
Opinions chaps?

The Cadet movement secured six major Government grants in July. The Co-location Initiative is a scheme run by the Department for Children, Schools and Families. It offers grants to cost-saving projects that bring together services for children on a single site, and covers areas such as health, education and youth groups. The Cadet Forces were awarded a total of £4.4 million, which will be spent on new facilities this year and next. The successful projects cover a mix of community based Cadet Force units (Army Cadet Force (ACF) and Air Training Corps (ATC) and Combined Cadet Force Contingents; all but one are schools based with the remaining unit being based in a Community Sports facility.

Spend the money on accommodation in camps. We have had virtually any chance of getting accommodation in camps removed. This is due to (alleged) defence cuts limiting the number of bed spaces allocated, on a monthly basis, by military camps. To me this cost cutting measure seems ridiculous, as empty beds must cost as much to run as full ones do: however the bean counters in Whitehall will probably be able to substantiate their decision.....
