P-04-432 : Stop the Army Recruiting in Schools

We call on the National Assembly to urge the Welsh Government to recommend that the armed forces should not go into schools to recruit.


Britain is the only country in the European Union that allows a military presence in its schools.  Britain is the only country of the 27 European Union countries to recruit 16-year-old children to the armed forces.  The armed forces target their recruitment in schools in the most deprived areas of Wales.
