    The reason for the fall in recruiting has nothing to do with the operational tempo putting people off - we have had record numbers of applicants - higher than at any time in the last decade.

    The reason for the fall in numbers joining is because of the SDSR, redundancies, the cut in recruit intakes and the fact people aren't leaving in anything like the usual numbers because, despite what governments claim, we're still in recession.
