More cash for cadet forces; COMMONS POLITICS.

Extra cash will be made available to extend cadet forces to more schools across the country, Prime Minister Gordon Brown told MPs yesterday.

Mr Brown said he was "hugely impressed" by the work of the cadets and said he wanted to see cadet forces developed "across a whole range of schools".

He was responding to Labour's Dari Taylor (Stockton S) who praised her local Army Cadet Force in Durham, which she said took 700 youngsters away on holiday in the summer.

At Commons question time she asked the Premier to announce "what further this Government is prepared to do to support the future of the Army Cadet Force."

Mr Brown said: "I have been hugely impressed by the work of our cadet forces, the Combined Cadet Force, the Sea Cadets Corps, the Army Cadet Force and the Air Training Corps."
