asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the present strength of the Women's Royal Army Corps, Territorial Army, and the Women's Royal Army Corps, Army Emergency Reserve, shown separately as officers and other ranks; whether he is aware of the uncertainty caused to all ranks by the delay in announcing the effect on them of the Government's proposals to reorganise the Reserve Forces; and if he will make a statement.

The numbers are as follows:

OfficersOther Ranks
Women's Royal Army Corps (Territorial Army)3153,769
Women's Royal Army Corps (Army Emergency Reserve)1186
I have nothing to add to my answers yesterday about the reorganisation of the Reserves.
