    What is The Scout Associations position on the National Citizens Service ?

    Hi Wayne

    What is The Scout Associations reaction to the National Citizens Service been made statutory as announced in the Queens speech.

    I believe in the past we have questioned its cost effectiveness now that its budget is set to rise to a Billion pounds a year for providing three weeks of Explorer Scouting are we going to comment ?

    Hi Tony,

    Our view hasn't changed and we have reservations about the proposals in the Queen's Speech, in particular its potential impact on Scouting in Schools.

    We also believe it best to continue to work through our various channels, including other organisations with similar views, industry groups and directly with government contacts to get these points across.

    Many thanks,
    Wayne
