The debate into the 'Future of Gliding and the Air Cadet Organisation' takes place next Wed 13th April, 1100-1130, in Westminster Hall.

I've emailed my MP. Even trying to keep it brief and sticking to the highlights and the facts, it reads like a rant.

If there is a move to fully militarise all volunteers, that would be in keeping with a strategy to ensure the long-term collapse of the gliding organisation. The list of hoops that an adult volunteer will have to jump through will deter sufficient numbers, and in years to come the whole thing can be wound up owing to lack of volunteer support. Someone will get a mention on a New Year's Honours List for their sterling services to the ACO and the nation's youth...
