TA training cutbacks abandoned

The prime minister has agreed to reverse planned £17.5m cuts to the training budget of the Territorial Army, the BBC understands.

Labour sources say Gordon Brown met former Defence Secretary John Reid to discuss the issue amid calls from his own party to intervene.

Tory leader David Cameron raised concerns at last week's Prime Ministers Questions.

On Monday, the government reduced the scale of the cuts from £20m to £17.5m.
