S5W-09291: Ross Greer (West Scotland)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 23 May 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-07573 by John Swinney on 8 March 2017, what its position is on written answer HL1278/2015 in the House of Lords, in which the Under Secretary of State for Scotland indicates that a “linked detachment program” operates in six Scottish state schools, which uses “the army cadet force syllabus” to “extend the cadet experience into state schools”.

Answered by: John Swinney 8 June 2017

The UK Government has no responsibility for design and delivery of education policy and practice in Scotland. We do not support cadet units being based in state schools in Scotland.
