Hansard, Written Answers to Questions, Thursday 26 April 2012:

"Bridget Phillipson: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many redundancies have been announced as part of Tranche 1 and Tranche 2 for each (a) Army regiment, (b) naval unit and (c) Royal Air Force group. [104371]

Mr Robathan [holding answer 23 April 2012]: The available information will be placed in the Library of the House. However, two important provisos must be noted.

First, redundancies relate to individuals, not to their posts. This means that in many instances, personnel who leave a particular unit on redundancy will be replaced by re-assigning personnel from elsewhere. The locations and units in which personnel are serving when notified for redundancy do not therefore necessarily represent a reduction in the strength of those locations or units.

Secondly, service personnel typically change appointment every 18 to 36 months; the units in which personnel were serving when notified will, in some instances, be different from those in which they are serving on exit.

While the redundancy fields and maximum yields required in Tranche 2 have been published, the selection process is still under way and notices of redundancy will not be given until 12 June 2012. The disposition of redundancies for Tranche 2 is therefore not known at this stage."

Document made available later in the library of the House:

REDUNDANCIES BY LOCATION IN RESPECT OF TRANCHE 1 OF THE ARMED FORCES REDUNDANCY PROGRAMME


Below are a series of tables that provide information on the geographical spread of those selected for redundancy in Tranche 1 of the Armed forces Redundancy Programme. However, two important provisos must be noted:

First. redundancies relate to individuals, not to their posts. This means that in many instances, personnel who leave a particular unit on redundancy will be replaced by reassigning personnel from elsewhere. The locations and units in which personnel are serving when notified for redundancy do not therefore necessarily represent a reduction in the strength of those locations/units.

Second, Service personnel typically change appointment every 18-36 months; the units in which personnel were serving when notified will, in some instances, be different from those in which they are serving on exit.

Not so says the Minister

Publishing the figures, Defence minister Andrew Robathan pointed out the redundancies related to individuals, not their posts.


He said: “This means that in many instances, personnel who leave a particular unit on redundancy will be replaced by re-assigning personnel from elsewhere. The locations and units in which personnel are serving when notified for redundancy do not therefore necessarily represent a reduction in the strength of those locations or units.”

Never let the truth get in the way of a misleading headline and a subsequent whinge fest.

Good old sub editors putting a misleading headline on a story...

... although someone should tell Hansard it should be fewer than five for grammatical accuracy...
