Big reserve forces cuts inbound

The stated CCs requirement for TA assistance in anything right now is currently zero. There is no requirement for TA assistance full stop in this area. This is one of the reasons why the review is occuring.

Interesting, that's a bit of an about turn from a couple of years ago. Doesn't entirely gel with other things that are going on, but it may be that they've been asked to contribute to the funding hence any requirement evaporating.
 
Just as a matter of interest, where is the line drawn between the role of reservists with relevant industry expereience and civil service/govt contractors? Certainly I know of many reservists in the IT industry who could provide system if not architecture support, other commercially minded people could provide defence procurement support and some personel could provide infrastructure planning for rebuilding of contries. Is this an area up for discussion or is it cutting across too many political fiefdoms?

Does this mean that we may get rid of some of those personnel that are sat in billets, never been deployed and haven't even done their qualifying courses for their Rates (LRCC or SRCC). Yet because they are someones yes men, this seems to get overlooked and holds up promotion for others that have put themselves forward. I can think of at least 2 chiefs that fit the bill and are only qualified for killick (some would question that).

Surely by now all the dispensations should have been waivered, we've had enough time since the new rules came in to get on a course to qualify. If you haven't then that shows lack of commitment.

That looks to be more FTRS related than deployability, there used to be FTRS opportunities in DPA and DLO and I'm sure these, or similar, remain.
