It's finally arrived! I note from an article in the Daily Snail (so it must be true!) that the Armed Forces have been allocated quotas to reach by 2008 of ethnic minorities to reflect the proportions within the civilian population. Bearing in mind the recruiting/retention probs at the moment, I don't know where they are going to get the various percentages from but I suppose someone in MRO will be allocated a target to vet all applications and make sure each unit hsas the right split. A bit like the Police recruitment in Gloucester a few months back. As the Forces are voluntary does this mean a further dilution of selection to meet targets or will certain trades/Corps/Regts be 'full' until they meet their quota. Surely, if it's not broke, don't fix it!
