In an under-recruited TA, with only average numbers turning up for Ex's, we'd be hard pushed to spend the existing budget.
The day that training has to be canned with the current demands (MATTs etc) and the ever present mobilisation numbers, will be the death knell of recruiting and retention.
Not just that Bde, latest on the grape vine a certain NE Bde are going to do the same.HVM_Boy said:

Beyond that each Comd will have to justify further expenditure to the GOC (for additional recruits, AT, RTC costs, unit management, etc...). Each Bde's budget will be therefore start from scratch, whilst some suggest that this method will at least be better than last year's budget plus an uplift for inflation, it is causing not an inconsiderable amount of work in your Regt HQ and at Bde!
