Michael Fabricant – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Ministry of Defence

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Michael Fabricant on 2016-04-12.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what steps he is taking to encourage young people to join local Air Training Corps; and if he will make a statement.

Mr Julian Brazier

The Air Training Corps actively promotes itself through local, national and social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The Air Cadets website gets 1.8 million hits per year. Local Squadrons also regularly set up recruitment stands in town centres to encourage word of mouth recommendation.

The most important thing is getting Cadets gliding again. This is ramping up this year and will be fully in place in 2018.
