Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Has there been plans by MCM Div for the jock regiments 18 months ago??? If Manning control lists are routine, why was the jocks not getting them as a matter of routine? Why would they not need them? :? But then why bother sending them if Ingram and Caplin claim there not being used and no one has or will be discharged in the past two years and in the next 12 months?? Its getting very confusing :?

    Mr. Keetch: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when and how each soldier whose name is included on lists sent to units for the purpose of manning control point reviews is informed that they are under career review. [201488]

    Mr. Caplin: Soldiers are not informed that their name has been included on the list, which would include the names of all soldiers who match the parameters for review. They would be informed if their Commanding Officer recommended them for discharge as a result of the review.

    Mr. Keetch: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the estimated administration cost was of producing manning control point reviews for (a) The Black Watch, (b) The Parachute Regiment and (c) The Royal Signals in the last 18 months. [201492]
