EDIT: I've changed the title as it was a bit misleading used to say rejected I've not heard it officially but I've heard thats the case. I don't know the reasons but I guess its because of the Contingency Component Sqns, they were to created to just supply IRs. Whereas the Brigade Close Support Sqns (Bde Signal Squadron in English) could supply IRs and had another role. Also the plan lacked any support for regional Divisions. Also it would create units with a wide variety of roles, how would training be organised? Does the regiment train for the BCS role or for supporting regulars (CC) ???? If the problem was the CC role then one way to justify them is to give them a regional Division support role i.e. put them all together in a Divisional Signal Regiment. If we then followed regular army patterns, the BCS Sqns would become indpendent, allowing them to work more closely with their regional Bde.
