The majority of MPs voted in favour of delaying the disbandment of regular units until it is established that the Army Reserve plan is viable and cost-effective.
The motion approved by the majority of MPs was:
- That this House
- notes concerns about the Government’s defence reforms in relation to whether its proposals for the reserve forces will deliver either the anticipated cost savings or defence capability; and
- urges the Government to delay the disbandment of regular units until it is established that the Army Reserve plan is viable and cost-effective.
